Comment on the August 19 prediction: The price reset to $2.55 came on Monday, not Thursday, so 3/4 CORRECT, 1/4 WRONG.
Monday, August 28, 2017, 7:00PM: On Friday, the question was would Hurricane Harvey cause significant refinery closures in Texas, leading to potential shortages of gasoline in the Mississippi valley and the Midwest. We’ve learned from the past to not jump to conclusions about potential price hikes based on potential weather. Well, the flooding from the hurricane is real, and in the Chicago markets, they started jacking up wholesale prices today, so I’d fill up tonight or first thing tomorrow, before they hike prices. Best guess of the new price is $2.69-$2.75. –Ed A.
