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!

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.

      The Great Lakes Compact Council and the Great Lakes Regional Body are seeking public feedback on draft updates to the procedures for reviewing requests to divert water from the Great Lakes Basin. The compact is federal law that governs the use of water in the Great Lakes watershed. The compact council and regional body are accepting comments through June 21, at 4:30 p.m.  Under the compact, diversions of water out of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin are generally prohibited. However, the compact identifies limited circumstances under which diversion may be allowed. In some instances, before a diversion proposal can be approved, it must undergo review by the regional body and may require approval by the compact council. The draft updates are strictly procedural and would not modify the compact’s basic terms. The compact council is composed of the governors of the eight states that border the Great Lakes. The regional body includes the eight governors on the council plus the premiers of Ontario and Quebec. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is Gov. Mark Dayton’s delegate to both groups and provides data and water management expertise to assist implementing the compact. The effort to refine the procedures under the compact follows the states’ and provinces’ first experience reviewing a diversion request under the agreement. Reflecting on that experience and feedback from stakeholder groups, the states and provinces concluded that some aspects of the procedures should be clarified or refined. Following discussions with key stakeholders and tribal interests, the states and provinces developed the draft updates that were released for public review May 22. The updates include these changes: Expands opportunities for the public to participate at hearings and public meetings. Acknowledges the special status of First Nations and federally recognized Tribes through separate meetings with them and granting standing to contest compact council decisions. Identifies circumstances under which an additional public comment period would be offered between issuance of the regional body’s declaration of finding and the compact council’s final decision. Essentially, if the compact council views the regional body’s modifications to the applicant’s diversion proposal as substantial, the council would take public comment prior to making its final decision. The existing public comment opportunity prior to the regional body’s deliberations would remain. After considering public input received by June 21, the regional body will revise the draft procedural updates this summer. The compact council will then consider the updates and decide whether some or all of them should be adopted through rulemaking. The draft updates are available at www.glslcompactcouncil.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx. This website includes instructions for sharing feedback. The public input process includes an in-person opportunity to share feedback in Duluth on June 21 at Fitger’s Inn at 10:30 a.m. Documents are also available on the regional body website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I'm camping out on echo lake next week. Any tips or fishing info would be great.
    • brrrr
      explore with a shallow water boat, there are a few big boulders in there,and lots of gravel bars.   
    • Getanet
      It sure is.  I know you can camp on Kabetogama, Rainy, Namakan and Sandpoint through the National Park Service. For someone who's never been (or only once) do you guys recommend one lake over the others?  Sort of the "if you can only visit one lake, make sure its ______"
    • TheEyesofanAngler
      it actually was renamed from my understanding, but its easier for me to go with the old name.. i definitely would want to head out there. Thanks wanderer for the feedback. might've been the push i needed to go wet the lines next week. 
    • Satchmo
      Getanet, Most folks the first week or so did very well on the west end this year. It is a huge area with a lot of structure options. There are weed beds, sand flats, rubble shorelines, and creek inlets, just to name a few.The 5-15ft depths brought a lot of fish too big to keep. The keepers were in the 15-25ft range.  Evening movements can bring all sizes of fish shallow. This year, minnows were definitely the bait of choice. It's all about location, location, location. In general the best approach is to run and gun. Stay no more than 10-15 minutes in a spot, and then move to then next.  If the fish are there, they  are generally active. Stick with, and sooner or later, you'll get rewarded.  VNP really is an amazing place.
