Just paid $2.69 this morning. If history is an indicator of future trends then gas should drop about 20 cents a gallon following my purchase.

It seems that the price of gas use to follow the price of crude. In the last year the price at the pump can really vary from the price of the crude. Look at all holidays, always an increase right before. The BIG oil companies will do whatever they please. I thought the price was going to go up soon also with the new record high in crude oil and my wife called this morning and said on the way to work that she notice that 1 station she drives by daily went down 20 cents. Who can figure the oil companies or gas stations out. confused.gif

Where on earth did you find that? Eden Prairie area?

I'm just up the road from you and haven't seen anything under $2.95 in the last two weeks. $2.99 has been pretty consistant everywhere in my neighborhood.

Studies show there is a 2 week lag in crude oil fluctuations and pump price fluctuations.

Opec starting pumping more oil, but crude went up because hurricane, and pipeline fears of terrorism, this morning 2 refineries went down because of a lack of power, they take along time to get back up, I am sure that will effect prices. Its all a game of "HOW HIGH CAN WE GO!" And we are just pawns in their big game!

Plymouth - 169 and Rockford Road. Always 10-20 cents cheaper than the Minnetonka/Eden Prairie area.

All this talk about crude prices, refinery shut downs, hurricanes, terrorism.... I am starting to think none of it matters. I think some big oil fat cat gets up in the morning and says, "Honey, I feel like making money today. Let's raise the price of gas 20cents." And we still buy it grin.gif

Not a fat cat...there is just way too many types of gas for a gas refining company to keep up. Then throw in biodisel, e85m, 87 octane, 89octant 91 octane

When was the last time you did not fill up using 87% octane??? I maybe filled 1 or 2 gallons last winter for the strikemaster, but a truck no way....

Gas dropped 15 cents today. So much for the $80 hype. The worst thing that can happen is everyone run out and top off their tanks. Gas is supply and demand and they just love it when the hype machine gets rolling and everyone runs around like the sky is falling filling every last container they've got to save 10 cents.

      I've got a 53" ski...41"pike and an accidental 22" smallie on V. I have caught a 31" eye but not on vermilion.  Id  like to get a 30 out of there.

      Sunday was more of the same.  Morning bite was strong than waining midday.  Isaac and I managed 30 more walleye sunday morning before heading home. Our biggest for sunday 27" 8lb 4oz.  We caught 6 fish over 23" sunday, (2)23, 24  , (2)26, 27.   River is now open past Wheelers point.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.
