Gas Prices

225 posts in this topic

Well since everyone was so up in arms about gas prices this summer, how about some positives now that it’s come down nearly $2!

My wife paid $2.12 the other night in Red Wing. I heard of as low as 2.07 in Buffalo.

It never really changed going on fishing or hunting trips for me, but it’s obviously easier now.

Let’s hope it’s here to stay for a while.

On the news this evening they said MN enjoys the second lowest price per gallon average in the nation. My son was home from Phoenix for the weekend and just about flipped when he saw gas at $2.19 yesterday. He says it's around $2.80 down there.

Marcell is gettin' robbed. I always fill up in rapids cause a certain gas station owner in Marcell gouges his customers. Even rapids is higher than others though. What up wit dat.

There is a little gas station up here about 16 miles out of town that generally is a bout $.10 more per gallon there too. Little community stations are pretty likely to gouge if they can.

"The Marcell Bandit" Sometimes gets a little crazy with it though. There were times early this summer when it was 4.02 in Marcell and 3.39 in Rapids, bigfork, talmoon, gods country outfitters, and blackduck.

here's what bothers me. last time oil cost this little per barrel, gas was 50 cents a gallon cheaper than it is right now.

take it while you can, its the one positive side effect of a recession. my demand isnt down at all, but thank goodness world demand is low because of bad economies

Casey, Doesn't it normally take the East Range a while longer for prices to drop? I know when I am in Virginia it tends to be about $.15 per gallon higher than Chisholm and Hibbing.

$2.04 in Cambridge!! I think price will drop below $2.00 and after the elections it will start to creep back up because OPEC is cutting back on their production. Winter heating will start to cut into the supplies and with less coming from OPEC prices will begin to rise again.

I stated something about this in the tread were OPEC was cutting back production. Many countries including Iran, Venez, Russia, etc. have based there government run economies on (I heard $80 b oil) And these countries are the ones that put pressure on OPEC to lower output to try and bring up prices.

I'm fine with that. Charge us what you want.

On another note, how does $100/bushel of wheat sound? $90/bushel of corn? you get the idea. Last I checked you couldn't grow this stuff in sand. laugh

Well then, you're seriously uniformed. Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran are major wheat producers. Saudi use to be a major wheat exporter but now produces enough for its own needs plus a bit more to use in charitable causes. Although it's a desert country, Saudi uses it's natural gas reserves to power its industrial sector and to desalinate water (electric production is a byproduct of the desalinization plants), much of which is used in the agriculture sector. So you'll need to come up with something else to get back at them with.

All WE have to do is conserve and keep oil below their stated (needed sum) that ought to make em think anyway.

Those OPEC countries have been price gouging us long enough. If your economy is dependent on $80 or $90 per barrel oil TOO BAD for you. Time to diversify your economy and its time for the US to start getting more cars off fossil fuels.

Nicely put sparcebag.

I agree Quetico, but for now its our economy/society that is dependent on oil. We need to get off the stuff but its a tough drug to quit.

And right now the auot industry is not offering any alternatives becuase its not profitable for them.

They seem to be making quite a profit on hybrids. Pretty hard to make a profit on technology that does not exist yet.
