Post Michigan Lake St. Clair Boaters ?????

Wanted to put a quick file together that compares gas prices for all Lake St. Clair marinas. Take a look at this and let me know if I should pursue further.

Looks like you put some work into this and it's not a bad idea. But its almost a mute point with me because I always top off at Sun-Up Marina, where I keep my boat. Others may find it very usefull.

Didn't take that long to prepare. From my experience, I have found that the gas on the North Channel is usually cheaper.

If I got this started, it would hopefully start some competition between the marinas. Maybe it is just wishful thinkng.

I agree it's usefull, I usually get gas on the trailer, but it's true the north channel is where prices are best. I feel like I pulled a fast one on the stations still cuz I topped off for winter at 1.09 a gallon. I had to get gas on the clinton river a few times this summer and it would be $.30 a gallon cheaper at deckers when I went by 10 minutes later. I feel bad for poeple that dont have trailers, they spend alot more on gas in a few summers than a trailer costs.

I will try and get something out to the marinas and see if they would be interested in sending me their gas info each Friday.

I would fill up using my trailer if the ramps on North Channel were deep enough. The DNR ramp is across the street from a gas station, just need the water to be deeper. I spent about $2000 on gas last summer.
