Hudsonville is the Place to Buy Gas This Weekend

Comment on the October 11 prediction:  It was CORRECT.

Friday, November 11, 2011, 1:25PM:  After some ups-and-downs in the wholesale and retail market this afternoon, let’s see where we are at.  Chicago-based wholesale prices have been dropping all week, according to Bloomberg, the place where price hikes occur is about $3.35, and retail prices in the Grand Rapids area are mostly near $3.50, except in Hudsonville, where it seems a gas-price war has broken out.  So, I’m expecting prices to drop to near $3.40 around town as the weekend goes on and into Monday.  Good!

    With the Michigan spike line currently at $3.1092, some areas may see $2.999 or below before the month is out. Here are the lowest prices currently reported in the state:

    $3.079 in Sterling Heights at Zazz, 15 Mile Rd. near Mound Rd.
    $3.099 (cash only) in Sterling Heights at BP, 15 Mile Rd. & Mound Rd.
    $3.129 in Detroit at Citgo, W. 7 Mile Rd. & Southfield Fwy.
    $3.149 in Sturgis at Admiral, U.S. 12 and Jacob St.
    $3.149 in Sturgis at Speedway
    $3.149 in Sturgis at Murphy USA (Wal*Mart)

    Current averages (GasBuddy/AAA):

    —— / $3.539 Marquette
    —— / $3.456 Traverse City
    $3.440 / $3.442 Grand Rapids
    $3.417 / $3.449 Ann Arbor
    $3.415 / $3.411 USA
    $3.398 / $3.428 Michigan
    —— / $3.422 Benton Harbor
    —— / $3.417 Jackson
    $3.378 / —— Kalamazoo

    —— / $3.391 Saginaw-Bay City-Midland
    $3.366 / $3.407 Detroit
    $3.349 / $3.356 Lansing

    New York gasoline futures for December delivery are down 17.11¢ since last Tuesday’s close, from $2.7064 to $2.5353. However, they are up 4.4¢ this morning.

  2. Its all about the same price. Anyone who falls for this is stupid. 13 cents does not make a difference. You can make more if you just work. We are slaves to transportation. Oh well.

  3. So, you’re saying your post should be deleted for being spam to promote a website. You are trying to increase the link popularity of your website on search engines for the keywords you used as your name.

    Please delete this post as well. It does not need to exist after the one above is deleted.

  4. Someone different has written an article about gas prices for the Kalamazoo Gazette, their business editor:

    “Ho, Ho, how much? Gasoline prices are on the rise as we head into the holiday season”

    This article reminds me that our next price reset (increase) could occur next week on Monday or Tuesday, ahead of Thanksgiving, so I suggest that Monday morning might be the best time to fill up for Thanksgiving travel.

    As far as that Gazette headline, it just isn’t true, as it is written in present tense and gas prices presently are not rising. Since my previous post made only yesterday, the Michigan average has dropped 2.2¢ to $3.376. The USA average has dropped 0.6¢ to $3.409. The averages in Michigan’s metro areas have all dropped, from 2.4¢ in Lansing to 3.7¢ in Flint.
