TRENTON - (AP) - New Jersey motorists won't have to pumptheir own gas anytime soon.
Gov. Chris Christie told a caller on Millennium Radio's "Ask the Governor" program Tuesday that he won't support legislation for self-service gasoline because most residents don't want it.
Christie proposed allowing self-serve gas while campaigning forgovernor in 2009. But he said he dropped the proposal because ofpush-back from drivers.
His predecessor, Democrat Jon Corzine, abandoned a similarproposal three years earlier after estimating the savings at 6cents per gallon.
Christie says New Jersey's gas prices are still among the lowestin the country. That's because the state has a lower gas tax thanall but a few states.
New Jersey and Oregon are the only states that don't permitdrivers to pump their own gas.
