The closing of the Milwaukee to Green Bay pipeline in 2016 has had a big impact on gas prices in Door and Kewaunee Counties. Parv Jandu, the owner of Jandu Petroleum convenience stores, says it’s the reason why gas is more expensive on the peninsula than it is in Green Bay. Once gasoline has to travel more than 100 miles, the more surcharges and fees there are. Gasoline comes by truck from Milwaukee to Door and Kewaunee Counties. Green Bay is less than 100 miles from Milwaukee while Door and Kewaunee are not. Jandu says many people think the gas stations in Door and Kewaunee are price gouging.
The Milwaukee to Green Bay pipeline was closed in March of 2016 when inspectors found problems with the pipeline that needed further testing. It was closed permanently in June of 2016 after they found extensive repairs were needed.
