    Gas Price Prediction for the Weekend of October 18 - 19, 2014

    Posted to the Web October 20, 2014, 8:00 AM EST.

    Released to subscribers October 17, 2014, 5:57 PM EDT.

    Change in Futures (Avg.): +0.018

    Change in 2nd-Lowest Retail (Avg.): +0.011

    Pressure: (Avg.): -0.233

    Trend for tomorrow: Steady

    Trend for next 2-3 days: Down

    Recommendation for tonight: Hold off and buy gas tomorrow.


    1. Average pressure is steady for tomorrow and strongly upward for the next 2 to 3 days, and things are similarly wishy-washy at the local level. While our algorithm says the average second-cheapest gas prices among our 12-city national prediction model is more likely to go down than up, it is worth noting that the few local predictions that are not wishy-washy this weekend are saying prices are going to rise. This might be a good time to hedge your bets and buy half a tank.
    2. When average pressure is steady for tomorrow and downward for the next 2 to 3 days, our algorithm predicts a range of prices for the next business day which includes both increasing and decreasing prices. It also makes the general recommendation not to buy gas tonight. While the best possible outcome is that the recommendation not to buy results in a net savings (or at least no loss), we will still claim a correct prediction even if gas prices rise, as long as they are within the predicted range. Our prediction is just not as definite as it is in most circumstances. While we do not normally publish a predicted price range for the average price among our 12-city prediction model, we do publish it whenever average pressure is steady. The average of second-lowest gas prices among our 12 cities tonight is $3.197. Our predicted price range for the weekend is 3.120 - 3.236. We will call this a successful prediction if the average price moves downward over the weekend (regardless of how much), or if it moves up as far as $3.236.
    3. We don't actually keep records on things like this, but this is among the most wishy-washy predictions we've ever published. Long-range pressure is still downward, but gasoline futures have risen - and rather substantially - two days in a row, creating some upward pressure. At the same time, the magnitude of pressure, which drives the magnitude of likely price changes separately from direction, means retail prices could go up or down rather sharply and yet we'll still call this a successful prediction. Yeah, we know. But that's the way our algorithm has evolved. It's more useful than this most of the time, but this weekend it's not much more useful than flipping a coin.

This gives you the advantage of having the predictions before everyone else, and in time to decide to buy gas tonight! Save a few cents per gallon each time you fill up.

    Why Subscribe? Gas prices are just going up and up, so what's the big deal about a prediction? Prices are simply going up and there's nothing you can do about it, right? Not really! Once in a while, prices halt in their upward trend, and even move downward. That is your opportunity to save money on gas. If you know when prices are going to fall, you can make sure you have room in your tank to take advantage of it. Or if you know prices are going up tomorrow, you can fill up before they rise. And that's what is all about! Subscribe today!
