Comment on the October 23 prediction: We only got down to $3.09 on Alpine, which means I was a bit too optimistic, and WRONG.
Monday, October 28, 2013, 7:00PM: Wholesale gas prices have jumped 17 cents since last Wednesday (thank you, refinery fire), and we are at the point where the retail price is pretty much the same as the price retailers are paying to fill their own tanks. So, we are getting the trick instead of the treat, on Tuesday or Wednesday. Estimated new price: $3.45 a gallon. –Ed Aboufadel
