Gas Prices

Recommended Posts

uplander

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)

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
