Funny how prices jump 10 to 12 cents in our area, then to come down only 2 cents a few days later. Price on the open market sometimes goes down and prices go up at the pump.

Please watch out.....
Speculators on the NYMEX are bidding up the price of wholesale gasoline futures. Today / Wholesale RBOB gasoline delivered to Port of New York
is being offered for $3.31 a gallon in April contracts.

What's that mean - our local refineries will add another 15 cent to a gallon of wholesale gasoline in March. That means our retail gas prices will be over $4 a gallon.

Please make sure you are signed up and use your discount plan - such as Kroger, Family Fare, Meijer, or other and use it to keep your cost under four dollars a gallon. Remeber, when Speedway lost five per cent of all sales both gas and c-store back in 2011, they drop gas prices under $4.
Please don't buy anything from Speedway if they go over $3.99.

Yup this is in the wrong category. It should be in in the local Michigan forum or General Gas Talk.

Are you alluding to collusion by GasBuddy? Are you suggesting that they need to improve the site by ??? by what??? How does Gasbuddy have any control?

There is no suggested improvement in this thread. It belongs in your local forum or in General Gas Talk.
