New Jersey Gas Stations Cut Gas Prices to Demonstrate Self-Serve Savings

TRENTON, New Jersey – May 12, 2022 – More than 75 New Jersey gas stations will drop prices Friday to demonstrate how much motorists could save if the state offered the self-serve gas option.

Fuel Your Way NJ Self-Serve Awareness Day is part of a campaign to educate the public about how much they could potentially save if the Motorist Fueling Choice and Convenience Act were enacted.

The legislation, which was introduced in the state Assembly in February, would allow gas stations to offer self-serve, while requiring stations with more than four dispensers to continue to offer gas pumps full-service, giving consumers the option of pumping their own gas if they wish.

“With the cost of gas prices continuing to rise, it’s taking up more and more space in people’s wallets,” said Sal Risalvato of Fuel Your Way NJ. “We want the public to know that one of the fastest ways to reduce gas prices is to allow gas stations to offer self-serve in New Jersey.”

Motorists parking at participating gas stations will also receive a facsimile of a $100 bill over the next few weeks with the message that they could save $100 to $400 a year if the state allowed the self-service. Motorists will be encouraged to contact their representatives to demand passage of the legislation.

Gas stations will also post a sign next to pumps that have been closed with the message, “This pump would be open if New Jersey allowed self-service refueling.”

Risalvato said gas stations are struggling to hire staff to fully outfit all of their pumps. As a result, motorists are often inconvenienced when forced to queue for the few open pumps.

The bill, A3105, is sponsored by Assembly Members Carol Murphy, Ned Thomson and Annette Chaparro. A complementary bill has not yet been tabled in the Senate.

A recent Monmouth University poll found that a majority of New Jersey residents support self-serve gas as long as stations maintain a full-service option. More than 2 in 3 people told pollsters they would pump their own gas if given the chance and it would save money.

“The legislation gives motorists the choice of self-service while still getting full service, which is exactly what New Jerseyans say they want,” Risalvato said. “But the legislature won’t pass this bill unless it hears from voters. If you are in favor of self-service, speak up. Contact your legislators and let them know.
