Yep !

esky150 had a BIG influence on local businesses !

But, it also had a more negative impact on our wallets, all the while…

somebody must have told the gas companies that Escanaba was having a big birthday bash ...

these good ole republicans immediately raised the price of gasoline

from $3.389 by $.76 cents and change


Nice going gas companies,

you saw yet another chance to make a quick buck and

you took it and you made more than a buck,

quite a few bucks at that...

just saying...

said the gasoline pipeline between Milwaukee and Green Bay is a little holy…

now, if I had true entrepreneurial republican spirit,

I’d say ‘self, how can I fix this pipeline for free’?

Raise the price of gasoline a few bucks a gallon ‘dummie’ !


Free Enterprise,

Private Enterprise,

and the




at it's glorius best !
