WALL TOWNSHIP - Tuesday night on New Jersey 101.5, Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) discussed the prospect of New Jersey residents pumping their own gas. The governor says that he thinks people want their gas pumped for them. It's a topic that the governor discussed during his campaign back in 2009. Christie pushed to change the full service law, but put the brakes on self serve when he realized it was unpopular.
At a gas station in Pennsylvania, News 12 New Jersey found gas for $3.55 per gallon. At the Jersey Shore, News 12 New Jersey found gas for $3.35. The governor says our price is among the lowest in the country because we're near refineries and have lower gas taxes.
It's possible that the price of gas could dip if New Jersey allowed motorists to pump their own gas.
New Jersey and Oregon are the only two states left that do not allow drivers to pump their own gas.
