The decision to not repair or replace the gas pipeline running from Milwaukee to Green Bay could cost you more money down the road. West Shore Pipe Line announced last week it would not replace the pipeline after they closed it last year due to fuel leaks. Jandu Petroleum owner Parvinder Jandu says motorists will continue to pay higher prices compared to the Green Bay market because of fuel transportation costs.
A plan to keep the Port of Green Bay open through the winter for petroleum shipments was eventually nixed, but ice fishing guide JJ Malvitz says it is something he has to keep in mind for next season.
Gas prices in the Green Bay metro area currently sit at $2.41 a gallon, which is up 18 cents from a month ago and up 26 cents from a year ago.
