Last night, I was able to fill my tank in a central New Jersey Valero station for $2.239 per gallon. To fill up my tank, it was just over $20. It felt good at first, but a few short years ago I had been paying half that amount.
Many of the gas stations in my area of New Jersey that once appeared to be independently-owned now have new branding, including Valero and Lukoil. Is anyone else seeing a similar trend? What kind of gas prices are you seeing lately?
