Gas prices continue to drop and some of the lowest prices in the state are right here in Monmouth County.

According to newjerseygasprices.com, as of this morning (Tuesday), the top three lowest prices for regular gas in New Jersey are at Monmouth County gas stations.

The lowest is the Route 9 Lukoil in Manalapan near Franklin Lane at $1.49, and right behind that is the Raceway on Route 9 and Kilmer Dr., and the Valero on Route 9 near Tennant Rd., both at $1.51. All the above prices above are cash prices.
