Since Jackson Skate Center is closing, we won't have a roller skating rink in Ocean County.

There is a rumor that maybe a new one will be built in the same location, but we'll have to wait and see. I can't seem to get answers to that. If you know anything about a new one being built, please email me

So, I was thinking this could be the perfect spot for it. We definitely need at least one in Ocean County. Personally, we need more than just one in Ocean County. But, we need one.

The perfect spot would be in the Kohl's Plaza in Toms River. That old supermarket that's been empty for years. It's large enough and has perfect parking. That building has been empty so long.

When asking you what you want in that location, one of the very popular responses was a roller skating rink. I know Wegman's was the number one choice. It seems like a supermarket would fit the best there, but with the size of the building, I think a roller skating rink or center would be perfect.

Tim and Robin want a roller skating rink in that location, thanks guys, it would be perfect.

It's been sad news since hearing the news this weekend that the Jackson Skating Center will be closing at the beginning of October. We all had so many great memories from the skating center. I just loved it there so much. So many birthday parties, date nights, afternoon skate hours, and so much more.

What do you think, where would the perfect location be for a roller skating rink in Ocean County?

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
