Comment on the September 21 prediction: Yep, prices rose as predicted, so I was CORRECT. Then prices started to plummet.
Monday, October 6, 2014, 8:45PM: Gas is below $3 a gallon at several stations in the area, including $2.91 in Lowell. It looks to me like the retailers are selling below cost right now — kind of a clearance sale of expensive gas they bought a few weeks ago. But wholesale prices have ticked up today, and I think Speedway and friends (now including Hess on the East Coast!) will decide it is time to re-set prices. There is a case to be made, based on past behavior, of a new price of $3.49, but I think they’ll set it a bit lower than that. –Ed A.
