JERSEY CITY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Big changes could be in store for New Jersey drivers, who might be stuck pumping their own gas if some lawmakers get their way.
Full service is now the law at New Jersey gas stations, but that could become a thing of the past, CBS2’s Ilana Gold reported.
“I don’t mind doing it myself,” said Emre Ataman of Brighton Beach, Brooklyn.
“It doesn’t bother me when I travel to pump my own gas,” said Joe Parlagreco of Jersey City.
But as WCBS 880’s Jim Smith reported, for drivers born and raised in New Jersey, pumping your own gas is a foreign concept.
“I really don’t know what to do. I hate when you go to those states where they let you pump your own and you’re standing there like an idiot saying how do you do this,” said one Jersey driver.
