Comment on the September 19 prediction: Mostly WRONG, as prices stayed low until late Sunday, when we got a surprise, slow-motion hike to $2.29.
Tuesday, September 27, 2016, 10:30PM: In case you are wondering, I do try to play the Gas Game with integrity. When, a week ago Monday, I predicted a mild hike was coming, I filled up the tank, and then watched prices continue to drip lower. And, when I received the Gas Buddy alert Sunday afternoon about a surprise hike to $2.29, I filled up for $2.03. That being said, our Big Red friends have been eating nothing-burgers since July, with mild hikes keeping us roughly in a $2.00-$2.39 range. Oil prices have been stable, too. So, now that the hike is done, why should we expect anything but lower prices for the rest of the week? –Ed A.
