NJ Gasoline Prices Rise Slightly

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Motorists are again seeing slightly higher prices at the pumps in New Jersey.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of regular gasoline in the Garden State on Friday was $3.04, up 2 cents from a week ago.

That’s also higher than a year ago, when New Jersey motorists were paying $2.63.

Meanwhile, the national average price rose to $3.12, up 2 cents from last week. That’s also higher than the national average from a year ago, which was $2.73.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the higher pump prices in recent weeks have mostly been caused by rising crude oil prices.

    Does anybody remember the so called ‘gas shortages” of the mid 1970s, when you had to wait on long “gas lines” and they had $5.00 limits? That’s the only thing I don’t miss about the 70s

    Boy how I wish I could get gas at the national average of 3.12. I bought gas in my neighborhood Tuesday 3.39, and that was the lowest price around here. I saw the same brand going for 3.43.BTW this is regular gas I’m talking about.

    Ross, stop complaining and blaming others for your faults. Is gas too pricey for you? Get a more efficient car, get a Civic.

    Whatever happened to taking personal responsibility.

    I would like to thank the Oil and Gas Interests for their continued efforts to help our economy. More-over I would like to thank Goldman Sachs, J.P.Morgan Chase, and all the combined Speculators in gas and oil futures for their continued efforts to artificially manipulate the price of gas and oil.
    I was especially thrilled at the way you guys diverted the oil and gas Tankers to a Foreign Port rather than where it was needed, nice touch! the remaining Tankers that you conveniently left OFF SHORE waiting for the price to rise, is the cherry on the cake of pure greed… I am concerned though; isn’t collusion to fix prices a crime? Isn’t zone pricing a crime? Isn’t wire and mail fraud a crime? Where is the S.E.C.? Where is the Federal Trade Commission? Where is the I.R.S.? Where the %$#@ is the Attorney General? How patriotic of these giant Corporations to help their country in its time of need. Lets all go into the desk draw and retrieve and dust off those old American flag pins stick them in our ass this time. People; Corporations have the legal right to steal in this country, “WE, THE PEOPLE” cannot stop this continued abuse by relying on our elected officials, our politicians are bought and sold on a daily basis just like any other commodity. This systemic corruption is unstoppable without a revolution.
    It does not matter if it is a Republicans or Democrat, Conservative or Liberal; the country’s system of government is dead. Democracy is dead, from the President right on down to the lowly County Clerk’s office; our country’s system of government has been corrupted, forever. From the people who brought you the ECONOMIC HOLOCAUST;
    Let’s all welcome the new and improved friendlier, GAS & OIL CRISIS!
