With 2014 just a New Years Eve celebration away, motorists have been hoping they'll be able to keep a resolution of finding cheap gas in the year ahead, so here are a few things you can expect at the pump in 2014:

This still underestimates the intentional price volatility that Speedway imposes on the midwest. They control the market share and thus, the prices.

doesn't take a crystal ball to know that there will be swings in the future and more of them will be up and less dropping down.
