You could save up to 23 cents on EVERY gallon of gas you purchase this Friday at quite a few gas stations across Central Jersey. In fact, it'll be available at gas stations across the ENTIRE state of New Jersey.

At least 12 gas stations across our area will join with more than 54 others across the state to offer these huge discounts at the pump on Friday.

The move to lower gas prices for one day only is part of an effort to change state law and allow self-serve gas, according to Sal Risalvato.

He's the executive director of the New Jersey Gasoline, C-Store, and Automotive Association. He shared the details of the plan with our sister station, New Jersey 101.5's news team, and the station's evening host, Steve Trevelise, earlier this week.

Risalvato says his organization is working with retailers to lower the prices at select gas stations as part of a "self-serve Day of Awareness." Surveys done with gas station owners indicate that the cost of labor to pump a gallon of gas is between 7 and 23 cents, he says.

As a result, for one day, these gas station owners will lower their prices by that same amount to show motorists how much money they could save IF New Jersey were allowed the option of self serve gasoline.

The gas stations that participate in this program will not make any profit on Friday, he says. And, in fact, some could lose money just to prove this vital point.


Signs will be posted at the participating gas stations to inform customers of the reason behind the savings.
