Gas Prices

6 posts in this topic

Why do they always seem to raise the price of gas when us sportsmen are going out of town in mass????..... Is it just me? I seem to remember a spike on opening fishing....trucks, boats...they know they got you and you are gonna pay......What's the alternative? Stay home ....yeah right....I just wanted to say I think they try to do it and I think it stinks!!!!!!! that's it... good luck this weekend... be safe...uplander

Gas prices are terrible. $3 a gallon. No rhyme or reason to spike it up when people head out of town on openers or holiday's. Kind of depressing.

I just did a check on the national gas price's and they seem to be on the rise everywhere. I seriously doubt Minnesota's Deer opener has affected the whole country, lets be realistic. And by the way, no, I don't own a gas station.

My favorite is when it goes from 2.79 to 2.99 and then to 2.89 within the period of about 6 hours...! and then when it 'drops' in price it goes down 2 cents! Lovely isnt it smile.gif

Actually I recall watching one of the in depth investigations that channel 5 or 11 does for its news. They looked into gas prices here in Minnesota and there were a few large Mn supplier or based companies that did raise prices based on demand for weekends like the above mentioned and Memorial, 4th of July and Labor day etc...I think they said whoever supplies SA was the biggest price mover and they set the market and it forces other gas stations in the area to move the price. It is only a few extra cents but they did admit that it is still spikeda bit. I would imagine Deer Opener would be one of them as well. Heck, I guess if you searched the archives on one of the news channel sites you may be able to dig it up. (5 or 11)

      Be cool if there was such a thing. Being people are getting so much more interest in pout it wouldn't be a bad thing I'd say.

      Thats what I thought.  But I am sure that is what the guy said

      I think some people are obligated to keep what they catch. Me I'll keep fish but not very often at least in the winter. (Not on Mille lacs) Mille lacs you have the chance at catching a trophy sure maybe it would be cool to keep it but for a lot of us letting a trophy go is as good as keeping it at least IMHO.

      Very disappointing for the resorts as well as anyone else with a financial interest in the lake.  Me?  I release 99% of what I catch anyways, so the rule doesn't affect me much at all....well, I suppose it means I'll have my favorite flats all to myself for at least one more year.  I just really, really wish they'd let us troll after dark in the fall.    Why walleye fishermen aren't more amenable to catch and release, especially on a lake like Mille Lacs that's been on fire for, what, three years now, is beyond me.  Who wouldn't want to go and catch dozens of fish a day even if you have to let them go?
