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 live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
