Month: February 2018

Go to Lowell. Buy gas for $2.20. Win the Gas Game!

Comment on the February 11 prediction: Prices dropped slowly but surely last week, so CORRECT.

Monday, February 19, 2018, 8:30PM: I would fill up tomorrow morning. We’ve seen retail prices continue to drop, while wholesale prices have started climbing again in tandem with the last week’s recovery in the stock market. Seems we are at the price hike point. I predict at least $2.59 a gallon in the next day or two. ($2.20 in Lowell this evening!) -EA

About that $3 Prediction

Comment on the January 21 prediction: CORRECT, as prices reset on January 23.

Sunday, February 11, 2018, 8:30AM: Whatever lightswitch that affected stocks the weekend of January 27-28 did the same in the energy markets. Oil has come down from $66 to $59 per barrel that past two weeks, and wholesale gas prices have started to follow, putting my $3-a-gallon-in-2018 prediction in jeopardy. That’s OK. You can already see this playing out in the Grand Rapids area, where prices have dropped in certain areas, as low as $2.39 in Comstock Park. But still in the $2.60’s in Standale. Your strategy this week is to not pay more than $2.49 in west Michigan. A hike this week would be a surprise. – EA (c) 2017 Frontier Theme
