Keeping an Eye on K&G

Comment on the February 19 prediction: Pretty much CORRECT, as a price reset to $3.29 worked its way through the system starting on Wednesday (thanks, Marathon). This was after a moderate uptick in wholesale prices, which of course reversed itself after the hike was initiated.

Sunday, February 26, 2023, 11 AM: And to continue, because that uptick was moderate, some stations never embraced the $3.29 hike, basically neighborhoods that have a new Kum & Go (Alpine Avenue, Division and 54th). You know, I am starting to think that this oddly-named chain from Iowa is going to be a gift to us in Kent County in 2023. Grandville, it looks like you are next.

Ignoring K&G for a moment, the only possible hike in sight is if other stations jump from $2.99 up to $3.29. No sign of any price acceleration right now. -EA
