Comment on the April 12 posting: We did get a hike, but not until that Tuesday. Then another hike on April 21. Prices have been falling since then.
Monday, April 27, 2015, 9:00PM: Oil prices have been gradually rising this month. (And you have heard the radio commercials lately trying to entice you to invest in oil with Wayne Allyn Root? I’m wary of any investment being advertised on ESPN Radio.) NYMEX prices are back to $2 a gallon for the first time since Thanksgiving. With retail prices doing their usual weekend slide, we have moved into price hike territory again. Looks like $2.69 is very possible on Tuesday or Wednesday. — Ed A.
