With the way gas prices in New Jersey are going, we'd cry if we didn't laugh. The average price of a gallon of gas is up 20 cents a gallon from last week and 40 cents from last month.

It's gotten so bad that over 70 gas stations in New Jersey are taking matters into their own hands by trying to put the pump in yours. This Friday for one day only, these station owners will cut their prices by the amount they believe you'll save if New Jersey would finally be allowed to pump their own gas. Check out the list here.
