I guess on some level, we all should have known that this was eventually coming.

For the longest time, New Jersey has been the only state in the entire country who doesn't allow their own resident to pump their own gas.

I'm not complaining one bit and I never understood why the world hated us so much for it.

They hate us cause they aint us?


One would think that people would get over it because we pay the price: don't we have some of the most expensive gas prices in the nation?

Even if we don't....get over it.

Quick pause: Gas prices are astronomically high and could soon reach over $4.00/gallon.

Here are the cheapest gas prices at the Jersey Shore according to WOBM.com as of now. If you know of others, email me: Nicole.Murray@townsquaremedia.com.

The Cheapest Gas Prices At The Jersey Shore as of Now

Gas prices are astronomical and could just continue to increase in price. Here is where you can get the biggest bang for your buck when its time to fill up.

But cheap or not, it looks like our days of being waited on hand and foot at our gas stations may soon be coming to an end.

Well, sort of...

There is a new bill being proposed for New Jersey that would set up a hybrid system: full service pumps with attendants and self-service gas pumps!

Jim...I don't feel good about it.

There have been so many times I stopped for gas in the dead of Winter when it was bitter cold, raining or snowing and I thought to myself: Thank god I don't have to step outside right now.

Buuuuut......there is a big perk that would come our way if this bill is passed.

According to News12.com, "The 'Motorist Fueling Choice and Convenience Act' sponsors say gas prices would be reduced up to 15 cents a gallon."

15 cents a GALLON?! Okay....you may have just bought my vote.

For New Jersey residents with a disability, they will be allowed to, "have their gas pumped for them at the lower self-serve price."

Okay, so what do you think? Yay or Nay.

If this bill is passed, it will go into affect just 90 days later so cheaper gas prices could be right around the corner!

Gosh I hope so.

Because if we could stop with the over achiever GPA looking gas prices and lower them to a failing grade, that would be greaaaaat.

I suggest you fill up your gas tank while you can still have someone do it for you - that is, while you still can.

While you fill up, take a look at where you should drive to once that tank is full:
