State Sen. Shirley Turner (D-Mercer) is proposing rolling back the gas tax to 2016 levels for 60 days.
The proposal would take the tax from its current rate of 42.4 cents down to 14.5 cents. 
That would save you 28 cents per gallon every time you fill up.  
According to AAA, the average price for a regular gallon of gas in New Jersey dropped another three cents per gallon since Wednesday, and is now below $4.30 per gallon.
The number is still 65 cents more than a month ago. A year ago, gas was below $3 per gallon in New Jersey.
