Wow! How Much Has Gas Gone Up In The Past Week in Ocean County, New Jersey
It would appear gas here in portions of Ocean County has gone up about 30 cents a gallon in the past week. Our prices here are averaging $3.70 which is cheaper than California which has gas hitting $6.33 a gallon for regular. The fact we are much less here than in California still doesn't take away the fact prices are on the rise.
Here in Jersey, we had gas prices averaging at $2.65 a gallon in 2019, now we are a dollar above that and climbing. Will we see prices towards $5.00 a gallon as we had early this year? let's hope not.
When I recently went for gas this week we were at $3.75 a gallon, last week we were near $3.45 so there are your 30 cents a gallon. As we all know this all adds up. I went for gas at $3.75 and need eggs and a double pack of large eggs was nearly $10.00!
Let's hope gas doesn't spike up to $5.00 again but let's keep an eye on it and share low prices with you.
According to Gas Buddy, there are two gas stations in Ocean County with the lowest prices, each at $3.43 a gallon for regular. Delta on Bridge Avenue in Point Pleasant and Tommie Vee's Auto Route 37 in Toms River.
