Cheap gas alert

For all my New Jersey/New York fam out there.... $1.82 right outside the Holland tunnel on the NJ side, there is a gas station on the right side (past the Mobil station) with an orange sign.

Just thought I would throw that out there.

I take it you don't have the heavily subsidized gas prices that NJ has.

I was taken back too when I saw it.. It dropped 15 cents in a week..

NJ gas prices are not subsidized. They are lower because NJ puts less state tax per gallon than NY/PA. NJ's Governor has recently been talking about raising NJ's gas tax.

Re: Cheap gas alert

Today, I paid $1.97 a gallon for regular at my local gas-station. I don't drive that much and it was my first fill-up since 12/8.

Back then - at the same gas-station - I paid $2.68.

Re: Cheap gas alert

Gas here is $1.69!(MO) For 87. I'm paying less that $2/gal for 93 (Ecoboost f150).
Gf puts the gas in the Heep. Bet it ever only gets 87 haha

Re: Cheap gas alert

Talk about Throwback Thursdays! I haven't seen these prices since bell-bottom jeans and psychedelic shirts were the norm.

Re: Cheap gas alert

I had to rent a car due to recalls, and Enterprise was charging $1.69. This morning I saw $1.73 in Bergen County NJ.

Re: Cheap gas alert

I was in AZ this week on business. Most volume stations were posted at $1.76 (I paid $1.74 to top off my rental before return) but I saw one Pilot along I-10 advertising $1.64.

I actually paid $2.19 in PA last night on the way home from the airport to add a little gas to my Summit so I wouldn't be so low with "weather" coming in. (my normal fill-up is on Sundays in New Jersey) I thought I'd never see that low in PA again!

Man, 1.64? Its a bit of a double edge sword with prices that have fallen that fast, but still, in the short term, I can dig it.
