But up here, "Citgo" is not mentioned anywhere on or near the pumps at 7-Elevens. As for 7-Elevens, some have gas, some don't. Here is a bit more from Wiki:

"In the U.S., many 7-Eleven locations used to have filling stations with gasoline distributed by Citgo, which in 1983 was purchased by Southland Corporation. 50% of Citgo was sold in 1986 to Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A., and the remaining 50% was acquired in 1990. Although Citgo was the predominant partner of 7-Eleven, other oil companies are also co-branded with 7-Eleven, including Fina, Exxon, Gulf, Marathon, BP, Shell, Chevron (some former TETCO convenience stores were co-branded with Chevron, and Texaco prior to the 7-Eleven purchase in late 2012), and Pennzoil. Conoco is the largest 7-Eleven licensee in North America.[87]

7-Eleven signed an agreement with ExxonMobil in December 2010 for the acquisition of 183 sites in Florida. This was followed by the acquisition of 51 ExxonMobil sites in North Texas in August 2011.[88][89]"

Note "Southland Corporation" was once the owner of 7-Eleven.

The thing is Citgo is not listed as one of the Top Tier Fuels or on the list.

Very interesting read in the Post Register this morning about a building moritorium at both ends of both of the airport runways. I found very interesting that Brad Cramer mentioned "significant development proposals" in those areas but there are FAA guidelines they need to follow or lose potential funding.

I have been wondering for the last few years how growth near the airport was going to play out. It seems that the westside is ripe for more development as we all know but what kind of impact will the new policy they are writing do to future growth.

I do often wonder if there will ever be potential to build a brand new airport further away from the city like many bigger cities have or if it has ever been talked about.

I could see a new airport north or south even west of town with interstate connections and plenty of room to expand. An interesting note is that there were more people that used the Jackson Hole airport last year so what can IDA do to fill that demand at the same time keep travelers from going to Poky and SLC? I would believe at some point another bigger runway and perhaps a couple of new gates will be needed so would building a new facility be doable?

Just rambling a bit I suppose...kind of itching for some development news. Anyone have anything?

The Jackson Hole airport exists for higher-end customers who want close-in service to the resorts. That said, I think Pocatello and Idaho Falls would be better served with a central airport, but the land and building costs would be great.

When I lived in IF/Poky, I used IDA several times. Easy in and out, but also saw flights decrease during my time there...as in there once was a IF to SEA direct flight, via Alaska/Horizon, now vacated from IDA so now you have to fly to SLC on Delta to get to Seattle. Wow. Also flew the old Northwest (now Delta) to Minneapolis out of IDA, (this was a Melaleuca boosted flight that didn't last long, but I see Delta now has seasonal service to MSP).

The key thing IDA would have to do is set competitive pricing. I was informed once that since Delta has contracted flights with INL, they aren't as concerned with "others". Not certain if there's any truth to that or not

In the past I know I've saved over $200 by flying out of PIH (Pocatello), for such a short drive, it's well worth the money.

In other news, the former hot dog stand in front of the Albertsons on 17th St is now a taco stand, Izcalli I believe. Interesting background, he started out as a taco truck in Rexburg in 2004, then in 2014 moved to IF on Broadway. That location is still open, the 17th St location has an expanded menu. Better news for some, they are open on Sundays!

Just wanted to bump that. ^^^

The development around the airport that was put on hold is approx. 600 Rockwell homes, east of the river near Fairway estates.

I vaugley remember the former airport director was opposed to the initial development years ago. Not sure why the city didn't clue in on this back then when he brought it up. Idaho Falls seems to suddenly be worried which makes me think the FAA stepped in .

Looks like Urgent Care will be the second tenant at Jackson Hole Junction.

Look for a Staybridge Suites south of Walmart on Utah Avenue. Of course nothing announced yet but looks to be in the preliminary stages.

A call center is opening in Snake River Landing in the Scientec Curtis Wright building. They are working on hiring hundreds of people in short order. I wonder how this might affect the next additions to the development. I was sure we would see more residential development in SRL last year and this year.
