Gas prices along Route 37 east and westbound are going up and the state is still locked within the grasp of winter.
Wawa, QuickChek, LukOil, Shell, Sunoco, Exxon and Delta are all corporate run. It is Wawa and QuickChek that are positioned strategically before and after the Thomas A. Mathis Bridge to net tourist’s money.
Prices are set by each corporate entity to stay a penny or two close to the competition.
The price for gas prices rising could be due to the political and social upheaval within Venezuela, the twelfth largest exporter of petroleum in the world as per 2017. This time of year is also when refineries go through routine maintenance. The price of crude oil could also have risen, in addition to taxes in the state.
235 a gallon for New Jersey that’s not a bad price in Houston the average prices 209 some gas stations are 229 a gallon
and a few years ago, gas was almost $4. two weeks ago, wawa was $2.44… now it’s $2.39.
Prices shot up $0.20/gallon in one week. And I’m still pissed about that bipartisan gas tax screwjob from 2 years ago. I can’t believe we have all these schmucks who think the cost of living isn’t high enough. Ridiculous.
Michael De Fortuna tax is about 50 cents per gallon…that’s about 25% Now they are raising tolls to get money to fix the roads
I’m hoping summertime doesn’t mean $3+
We’ll need the gas tax money to fix the roads destroyed by brine….haha
Kathleen Strittmatter ha ha…you’ve seen all the roads that have been fixed right…what a joke
David A Roebuck yes…it’s s joke
RBOB Gas Futures price
Gas prices should below $2
It’s not just NJ here in NC it’s the same going up a few times a week.
How about that gas tax Murphy passed it will be over 3 dollars this summer
