Higher Tariffs, Lower Gas Prices

Comment on the July 22 prediction: Absolutely CORRECT, as prices rose to $2.89 in Michigan on 7/24.

Sunday, August 11, 2019, 7:00PM: We’ve been enjoying declining prices, after the latest in Trump’s China Tariffs “War” sparked a decline in stocks and energy (and soaring gold prices). But, the decline stabilized at the end of last week. Using a Chicago CBOB price of $1.67 a gallon leads to an RBOB estimate of $1.71 and a price hike trigger of $2.33 or so. We are below that price in a variety of places in west Michigan, setting up a hike this week — $2.65? Maybe less than that. -EA

  1. NW ohio prices ranging from 2.45-2.85 still. lots of 2.65-2.69 around. so still a decent 40c margin in most places like most of the summer- wont stop Speedway from pushing prices back above 2.80 soon I am sure

  2. Gas is going up to $2.75 in Michigan today

  3. $2.89 as expected in Chicagoland. Some Speedways were down to $2.48. Some others down to $2.21!
