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)

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Start looking to first reefs off islands and shorelines as fish are starting to move to them.  30ft for us was good. Leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama

      Besides there's 3 nice ramps there. 1 on the west, 2 to the east of the bridge.

      Good pretty good. Went out from the northwest side I think Garrison. Made our way to eight mile was able to go full-throttle the majority of the way but when the waves got too big has lower down. My buddy went looking for a drift sock but couldn't find one so we used a five-gallon bucket which work fairly well glad we had at least that. Well we are drifting it was perfectly fine but a pain in the butt trying to motor back up through the big waves. Then after some time sitting out there I had enough of sitting on those big waves and told my buddy that we needed to get closer to shore. The right back was very slow going and wet. Started to get a little concerned when my bilge pump stopped working and the back of my boat started to fill up especially when I was finally able to give it more throttle man the back of the boat was full of water but we made it back I got a new bilge pump and everything was all good quite the experience but I'll be back there again with my boat. And good thing we had back when we did there was barely any gas left in the tank.

      We are headed out in yaks from st cloud to clearwater, with clearwater outfitters. Was looking for some posts about the river, looks like it will be a pretty nice float from your pics

      Got to cabin.  Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple.  Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible.   I'm on west end and could use a suggestion.  I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.
