Gas prices


Recommended Posts

I was looking at gas prices last year at this time vs this year, wondering where they may go. So I pulled this graph. We were at about 3.25/gal last year at this time. Hopefully they won't drive it too high this year. I think the economy will keep things in check...I hope!

If my business could have the same sales as last year I would gladly pay the higher gas price again.

My prediction is that the prices will stay pretty steady. Perhaps go up to low 2 dollar range. Maybe that is just a wish...

I dont think we ll hit the $3 mark for a while, unless something drastically changes with the economy.

we're going to see another spike and crash, though neither will be as drastic as what we saw this past year.

One of the news channels just had a report on that a few days ago and AAA is projecting gasoline prices shouldn't go much over $2.50, lets just hope thats the way it will play out

Gas prices always go up for the summer driving season. The will get to $.00+ again in the future. It won't be for a year or 2.

I think alot of what happen to the gas prices last year, was those that buy the oil speculated that it would go high and thus drove the price up. Hopefully they will not go crazy this year, last year being an election year did not help. The publis got the short end of the deal, and still are.

Wow Charley that prediction made my day! Although very unlikey it will ever go that low! grin Jk bud, but I'm 17 and fish alot of tourneys during summer and when working 6days a week at $8.75 an hour barely get you to the next landing it really adds the spirit of competition to winning one! A kid having nightmares about gas going up, you know things are getting pretty bad. I pray it wont go above even $3 though I'm sure it will smirk

      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.

      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night

      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?

      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.

      Well boat finally got "fixed" and I picked it up Saturday. Last week worked 96 hrs so Sunday wanted the day to fish alone. Boat ran great out to the spot, 4 miles or so. Fishing was great boated over 50 walleye in about 6 hrs. Caught them lindy rigging, jigging and bobber fishing watching them on the live scope. Kept 6 between 18-20 inches. After using the trolling motor for the entire time fishing, go to fire up the tiller and it bogs down and dies. Another 4 hours running the trolling motor back to the launch. Fortunate it's under warranty. Bummer of a day but fishing was great landed one about 7 lbs too

      Terrible news for that area especially this being such a prime time for tourism. We can only hope for dryer days ahead so they can get back to normal.

      For those not in the area, the Lake Vermilion area got anywhere from 5-10" of rain the other day (depending on your source). The lake is rising rapidly affecting docks, shorelines, and cabins. The Littlefork River that runs through Cook overran its banks and flooded the town. It's not expected to crest until at least Saturday, which means things will get worse. Places such as the Comet, the Muni, the library, and many other businesses are flooded. Many roads in the area have been destroyed by flooding as well. There's lots of damage. Below are two quick links.   https://www.northernnewsnow.com/2024/06/20/floodwaters-inundate-city-cook-evacuation-location-open/   https://www.mprnews.org/story/2024/06/20/cleanup-continues-flooding-in-northeast-minnesota-southern-minnesota-rivers-rising

      Apparently just the motorized portage.   If you paddle you are good to go.

      The only way I could do it is running parallel to the shoreline on the "L", but with the wake from the boats and my rocky shoreline, the waves just bounce it around too much, even with bumpers tied off. My neighbors dock is recessed off the main channel, I'm going to sweet talk him into letting me dock it there.

      They closed the Trout Lake Portage down washed out.
