A year or so ago I did a bit of research on "Rocket" as there are pumps and signs that appear in a couple photos I have of Gilmore stations, but didn't come up with much on them. In my notes, I have them being an independent gasoline company that sold a High Octane brand, an Ethyl and a Rocket 80, 90 and 100 grade gas. There may have been several companies that went by the name Rocket...??? Below is their sign that appears in the Gilmore pic...

There was a Rocket brand between Lake Geneva and Milwaukee that I've been curious about for many years. Red, yellow, and blue signage on a diamond similar to those used by DX. Pumps were painted a bright blue if I remember correctly, and I believe they went out of business in the mid-to-late '60s.
