New features! Three day price forecasting!

If you haven’t already noticed, as part of a one year celebration of TheGasGame.com, I’ve decided to start a small change- unfortunately it might encompass going away from the smaller type blog to the larger. The changes I believe are for the better, and the 3-day forecasting is part of it.

From now on, I will update the gas price forecast Monday thru Friday. (IE- come Sunday night, you will still see the forecast for the weekend). This will be another tool to help you decide when to fill up. I find this way to be much easier than dispatching an e-mail (the e-mail list is nearing its capacity of 500).

Feel free to leave a comment on the changes and let me know what you like, or what you’d like to see!

  1. Good luck with this initiative, Patrick. I’ve tended to take a more flexible approach, as sometimes it makes sense to me to make a one-day prediction, other times I prefer to look 3 to 4 days down the road.

  2. I like the 3-day price forecast, Patrick. It is an in-a-nutshell view of your near-term price predictions. It’s like the weather forecasts we’re already used to seeing. When I look at the predictions I notice the trend you’re forecasting and base my fillups on that trend and the prices I see during my commute.

    I can’t help but wonder, though. When weathermen forecast the weather it does not have influence over the weather. Gas prices are a human construct. It is likely that the people who “set” gas prices are aware of TheGasGame. Could your price/timing forecasts influence them? It is interesting. They could make your forecasts right or wrong on a whim, couldn’t they?

    I see that Speedway stations are distributing fliers which explain the factors that go into the price of gasoline. Have you seen these? I would be interested in your impression of their accuracy/honest in explaining gas prices to the general public.
