Houston, TX, August 29, 2008: Just in time for the big Labor Day driving holiday, PumpPredictor.com announces the availability of its retail gasoline price forecast service. This first-of-its-kind service sends motorists timely text messages and emails alerting them to either quickly fill their tanks to avoid a looming price increase or to wait to buy as prices are predicted to fall.
“We felt the time had come for consumers to get the jump at the pump,” said J. Scott Susich of PumpPredictor.com. “Our team has been in the oil business for decades; we know how the industry sets prices. The obvious question is â€˜Can I rely on this?'” continued Scott. “For years we have provided a service to gasoline distributors and station operators that predicts wholesale price changes with amazing accuracy.
And we knew that if we could predict wholesale prices, we could extend our model to predict retail.” Big commercial fuel buyers like gasoline distributors and vehicle fleets utilize market timing and inventory management daily. These techniques are proven to generate real savings on fuel. PumpPredictor.com now extends these savings to motorists with a simple, low-cost, zip code-specific service.
Users may enter up to 5 text or email addresses and assign a specific zip code to each. Then on a frequency established by the user, the system will send specific buying instructions based on forecasts for that zip code. “Shopping around to save 2 cents after the price has already moved up 10 cents is a real shame. It doesn’t have to be that way,” commented Scott. PumpPredictor.com does not rely on additives, fuel cards, station participation, or potentially warranty-voiding aftermarket engine modifications; instead the service uses sound market intelligence to save consumers money at any station in any town.
