It never felt so nice to be last on a list. New Jersey is ranked 50th when it comes to the average price of gasoline according to AAA. If you’re looking for more fun with gasoline price statistics, check out AAA’s Daily Fuel Gauge Report.
The good news is the station I usually go to offers regular unleaded for a few cents less than the New Jersey average. It still doesn’t make me feel that much better, knowing that I shell out close to $20 for what fairly recently cost just $11 or $12 — about three times a week. I’m glad I have a car that gets great gas-mileage.
