WCBS 880′s Sean Adams On The Story
“If I’m filling up, I’ll usually make the trip to Jersey. It’s a $5, $6, $7 savings,” one Rockland County resident said.
For service stations in Rockland, it’s a real struggle. They can’t compete.
At present, the amount over $2 per gallon is hit with another four percent.
How much could people save?
“A $20 fill-up will save about a $1.60 a fill up, about 8 cents a gallon right now,” said Day. “It’s a start. It’s a start in my mind and trying to put some real money back in people’s pockets.”
The projected budget deficit could hit $80 million. Legislator Day that $3 million number is not accurate.
