When motorists hit N.J. gas stations en route to the beach last Friday? According to AAA Mid-Atlantic, the average regular gallon of gas in New Jersey hit $2.91.
We were paying $2.41 at this point on the calendar in 2017.
Our current total per gallon puts us slightly higher than the $2.87 national average (which is way up from $2.33 last summer).
Without the infamous October 2016 gas tax hike of 23-cents per gallon?
We’d be at $2.68 at present.
In fact, we’d drop from being tied for the 18th most expensive gallon of gas in America right now to the 12th cheapest.
Yup. It’s almost as awful as riding NJ Transit! Almost.
