this an anti car billboard? No. There actually is an oil
company called "Stinker Oil." Some folks think all oil companies
A skunk is the mascot. It could have several meanings, but Stinker Stations have been around state of Idaho since at least the early 1960s.
My older brother remembered a billboard with rocks at the base. It said, "Petrified watermelons." "Take one home to your mother in law." "Stinker Stations."
I found this billboard in Lewiston, ID. 2005.
Across the road was a place called, "The HoHum Motel."
See my 2008 blog entry on oil economics.
