Don't you love how the media boasts about NJ having the lowest gas prices in NJ . I was excited to find a gas station down the street from my job that charged $2.81 per gallon. I think that is the lowest I have paid in months. However when it's time to pay my car insurance does it really matter that we have the lowest gas compared to the highest insurance?? At one point my car insurance for two cars was the same amount as my car note for one car!!!

I could complain but who do I complain to? Plus there are so many other issues, The mayor and city council are too busy mismanaging funds and raising property taxes but wait it's not their fault they didn't read the contract the appraisers sent over. But u gotta love NJ because WE HAVE THE LOWEST GAS PRISES IN THE NATION and they let us know that every chance they get!!!

Very strange, while I hear prices creeping up nationally, in NM it might be the only place it's gone down. In fact we are at 2.87. I never remember buying gas here for less than in NJ. That day might be coming soon if trends hold though.

The government feeds that information to the media because they want to raise the gas taxes. Like you said you do not hear them saying we have the highest property taxes in the nation lets lower them.

FYI:
oil companies make around 45 cents per gallon of gas sold, government makes almost 70 cents per gallon sold, figure it out!

who cares... it's one of those things you can't control and that you have to have. It's like milk... no one complains that milk costs over $4 a gallon when I can remember it being in the high $2s.

People crack me up when they drive 15 miles to save $.02 on a gallon of gas. Try buying a more fuel efficient car.... or better yet, ride a bike!

Hate to tell you but I was up at daughter's college in Murfreesboro, TN and gas was 2.78. It is a little more where I live, 2.83. I got gas there since I was there anyway. I do have to pump my own gas though, which I'm quite used to doing now.
I did that for many years on LI.
