    It's actually for insurance reasons. NJ has the highest population density in the US, the most automobiles/sq mile, and as such, the highest auto insurance rates in the country. Some car insurance companies won't evem cover NJ (ie: Geico... yet they still show those damn lizard commercials day in, day out). We aren't allowed to pump our own gas because of state law, motivated by insurance rates. While some places won't really mind if you start/stop your own pump, in most places we now have digital pumps which won't activate without an employee's ID card.



    Frankly, I think it's cause we allow our women to drive. =P

    Yep. Our prices are lower than anywhere else I know of... probably cause we have such a high demand, thus a LOT of stations all over the place... the stations have to keep prices low to stay competitive.

    As of yesterday, the prices here for brand named stations are $1.65/gallon - regular, $1.75 - plus, and $1.84 - premium. If you go to one of those unnamed ones, drop about 10-15 cents off each price.

    Our prices are really low because a lot of oil and gas actually comes through NJ for New england and the east coast. Newark is swarmed with refinaries. You ever watch the sopranos opening, yah you get the idea. So we have liek the 3rd lowest gas prices and we dont have to pump it ourselves.

    99% of gas stations have people pump your gas and probably would yell at you if you tried to do it yourself

    the other 1% are gas stations in the middle of nowhere, you gotta slide your credit card in the pump

    you'll kno when somebody is from jersey when you see them parked in front of a pump honkin the horn for half hour
