Sunday, March 15, 2015, 2:00PM: After wholesale prices jacked up on Monday, and then retail on Tuesday, they have been slowly dropping. In fact, in Fort Wayne, they never saw a spike. But I am concerned about this upcoming week. As indicated in this article, the big refinery in Whiting, Indiana is having some serious problems. This could cause wholesale prices to bounce around more than usual, which means quick hikes (and slow drops). What we have working in our favor is that oil prices are in trouble again, back to the multi-year lows they hit in January. So, my strategy this week is to fill up more than usual, when I see some low prices, and hope for no March madness. — Ed A.

The name of the site is based off an essay Ed wrote for the Grand Rapids Press titled "The Gas Game". The current website was established later by Patrick DeHaan after he and Ed predicted gas price hikes on GasBuddy's website GrandRapidsGasPrices.com, as well as Ed’s personal web page.
