Following the destruction caused by Superstorm Sandy five months ago, Governor Christie vowed this week that most Jersey Shore area attractions will be back up and running by Memorial Day, the unofficial start of the summer season.
The Jersey shore certainly won't be back to normal by summer 2013, and it may never go back to the way we knew it before October 29 of last year, but officials and realtors along New Jersey's coast say renting definitely remains an option.
Super-storm Sandy ravaged the Jersey shore. The beach erosion was devastating. Properties were damaged or destroyed. Come this Memorial Day, Sandy will be a distant memory for many, but they could be reminded just how horrific the storm was if they can't find a place to rent at the shore this summer.
Gas prices have risen over the past month, and prices have been predicted to shoot even higher for the main driving season - summer. Would the spike have a positive or negative effect on New Jersey business?
