Comment on the November 11 prediction: Prices did rise the next day (CORRECT), but only to $3.35 (a bit WRONG).
Monday, November 18, 2013, 8:00PM: Retail prices have been dropping like a rock, but wholesale prices have not, setting a price hike this week. With prices as low as $3.03 in Rockford, we are looking at a hike coming on Tuesday or Wednesday, maybe back to $3.35. Cross our fingers, though, that a hike this week will lead to no hike during Thanksgiving week.
