Comment on the December 17, 2014 prediction: No hike the last two weeks of December, so the prediction was WRONG.
Thursday, January 1, 2015, 1:30PM: Happy New Year to all our readers! I appreciate that you come to read about gas prices, and I hope we can continue to help you save money during 2015. Wow, on November 24, retail gas prices were $2.99 in Standale. Today, it is $1.84, and $1.68 in Lowell. Reports are that we have some of the cheapest gas in all of the U.S. It has been remarkable. What can we expect going forward? I have to bow to history and expect to see prices move up over the next few months, as they usually do during the winter. And we are due for a price hike, because drops in retail prices are finally catching up with drops in wholesale prices. If the pre-price crash rules hold, we’ll see a jump soon to about $2.09 a gallon. Friday? — Ed A.
