Gas up 34 cents in March, probably more to come

Comment on the March 16 prediction:  We have only had one price hike in the past two weeks, to $3.39 on March 25, so the prediction was WRONG.

Saturday, March 29, 2008, 4:30 PM:  On March 3, the wholesale price was $2.68 on NYMEX and $2.43 on AXXIS-Chicago, and the retail price was $3.05.  During March, the AXXIS and NYMEX prices converged, and then AXXIS jumped ahead, so that on Friday, the wholesale prices that were reported were $2.71 (NYMEX) and $2.80 (AXXIS), which corresponds to a retail price with a 20-cent margin in the $3.50 to $3.60 range.  Yet, we didn’t get the second hike last week, and the hike to $3.39 could have been worse.  Thank you, Speedway?  Nevertheless, look for another price hike in the coming week to at least $3.49.
