The lowest local prices are:
$1.95 cash regular

1500 Front St. & Terrill Rd.
$1.97 cash regular
59 South Martine Ave. & La Grande Ave.

Low fuel prices could open the door for states to hike taxes on gasoline as a seemingly pain-free way to increase state coffers. According to The Wall St. Journal, Governor Christie has been coy about whether he'd look to a higher gas tax as a way to generate revenue.
