Comment on the April 7 prediction: Since I was able to buy gas for $2.09 a gallon in Grandville on Saturday afternoon, clearly my prediction was WRONG.
Sunday, April 12, 2015, 7:00PM: Not sure why we got such a gas price sale this weekend … maybe it was the wonderful weather. But here are the numbers: Chicago CBOB closed Friday at $1.65 a gallon. Mix in ethanol, taxes, and middlemen, and I estimate that retailers are being charged $2.31 a gallon this weekend. So, $2.09 is rather perplexing. How can there not be a substantial price hike on Monday? I’m going to fill up (again) on the way to work in the morning. –Ed A.
