What gas stations are doing to save you money at the pump
With gas prices being out of control in New Jersey — up more than 20 cents a gallon from last week and 40 cents a gallon from last month — some owners are taking matters into their own hands. Well, actually they're putting matters into your own hands.
Sal Risalvato is the executive director of the New Jersey Gasoline, C-Store and Automotive Association and they plan on doing a day of awareness this Friday to show how much money we'll save if we simply pump our own gas.
Six dozen participating locations will lower the price on Friday. They will display these signs and hand out pamphlets.
Risalvato called into my New Jersey 101.5 show.
How did you come up with this idea?
"It started with an idea just to put up signs then it evolved in to this.”
How passionate are these station owners about us being able to pump our own gas?
"These guys are committed to passing self-serve and have contributed towards the cost of the campaign."
What would you say to those who still doubt that we'll save money by pumping our own gas?
"It is humanely impossible for competition to not prevail. It always has and it always will."
