Yesterday morning I was ready to predict a price hike, but then futures prices of oil and gasoline fell hard yesterday. Based on Monday’s closing prices, the 0-cent margin price (with an 8-cent Chicago Summer Premium) is $1.72. Also on my mind is that gas stations this month seem to have changed their behavior, from aggressive price hikes to aggressive price cutting. Speedway’s new 4% discount for their credit card also makes me wonder if we’ve now entered a more consumer-friendly period. So, I predict no price hike on Tuesday or Wednesday. As to Thursday, with the 4th of July weekend coming up, it seems a natural place for a price hike, but I’m not sure one way or the other about that. CORRECT — no price hike on Tuesday or Wednesday.
