It's going to be an expensive summer gas-wise in New Jersey as we go through "an incredible transition," in the words of President Biden. By the way, his "transition" will be easier because we pay for his gas. But based on that, don't expect gas prices to come down anytime soon, unless it's around election time for a short period.

Meanwhile, here in New Jersey, we have to deal with gas prices going over $5 a gallon. Some service stations are fighting back as best they could.

In Manalapan, Eddie Arena of Route 33 Auto Repair and Service bought as much gas as he could when prices were cheaper, and despite the recent increase at the pump continues to sell his gas at $4.89 as of this writing.

There are other stations throughout New Jersey that are doing their best to keep their prices under $4.90 per gallon. Costco's gas is cheaper, but they're going to require if they haven't already, that you purchase a membership from them.

After visiting Route 33 Auto Repair in Manalapan on Wednesday, I went on New Jersey 101.5 that night and asked my listeners as well as my social media following where to get cheaper gas. I used $4.90 per gallon as my limit.
