Gov scales back minimum markup law

Gov. Jim Doyle issued an order to the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection today to not enforce the minimum markup law on gasoline containing ethanol. The move ensures that those of us in Wisconsin that use blends containing ethanol, or those filling up with E85 gas will save at least a few cents when we fill up.

The minimum markup law has been around since the 1930s, and requires wholesalers and gas station owners to each charge 3% more than they paid for their gasoline.

Now if I could only find a station closer than 20 miles away.
