gas-prices The latest from Ed and Bill:  “Monday, July 6, 2009, 6:30PM: Wholesale prices have dropped significantly in the past week. With Monday’s close, I have the 0-cent margin price at a pretty $2.25. So, unless there is a dramatic reversal on NYMEX the next few days, the prediction is lower prices.

    Woo Hoo camping here we come. May be cool but at least we will be able to afford to go. Bill, any warm-ups coming? Bring on the warm and not so rainy weather our way, please.

    They were a little too late on this one. As of yesterday, gas prices had already went from $2.60+ to upper $2.30′s. The price of a barrel of oil dropped $10 the past week.

      Where are you seeing gas in the $2.30 range? Still around $2.60 in Lansing…

        It was $2.34 at the Valero in Lake Orion, MI last nite. 2.36 at the Sunoco.

          Not sure if you’re aware – but Lake Orion is over by Detroit and not near the source of this blog ;)

          Not sure why, but Grand Rapids seems to always lag the Detroit area by a day or two. If you really want to know what’s going to happen to prices, all you need to do is watch Detroit.

          Check out the historical chart (try 3 months) and then compare it to Detroit, MI in the 2nd slot:

          Sorry about the high gas prices over there! Valero was down to $2.31 on my way home from work.

    It’s a “Big Oil” conspiracy!

    Great to hear this for us Michiganders who need every dime we can hold on to. Big oil has enough money to run a whole country.

    what ever happened to Jennifer K?

    I wish that gas stations were still required to post a notice if they were selling gasoline blended with ethynol. Granholm dropped that requirement. Ethynol blends are less efficient, harmful to some fuel injection systems and they tend to absorb water. They should be less expensive but are usually sold at par with unblended gasoline. I know that Speedway, Wesco and Admiral gas is blended with ethynol.
