Groundhog Day....Shadow or Not?

By: Ali Ventura / February 2, 2018

In the movie Groundhog Day starring Bill Murray, he proclaims, “You want a prediction about the weather, you're asking the wrong Phil. I'll give you a winter prediction: It's gonna be cold, it's gonna be grey, and it's gonna last you for the rest of your life.” We hope a tradition that started in 1886 provides you with more entertainment than Phil’s winter prediction.


Guttman’s customers can both benefit from a quick spring or a prolonged winter depending on what industry you are in. From snow plow trucks using our Fuelman fleet cards to our valued over-the-road trucking fleets who hope for warm weather, we are watching with eager anticipation.

Although less impactful than an OPEC meeting, Punxsutawney Phil provides the first unbiased energy outlook in 2018. If we look at Phil’s past performance in 2017 Phil saw his shadow predicting six more weeks of winter. The greater Pittsburgh area averaged 37 degrees Fahrenheit, I wouldn’t necessarily say he was spot on. Let’s hope we can take this year’s prediction to the bank.

It doesn’t matter what happens with the weather, we here at Guttman Energy will be available in sleet, snow and sunshine to support your fueling needs. Happy Groundhog Day!
