Gas at $1.99 in parts of New Jersey

November 7, 2008 4:29:57 PM PST
One gas station in Monmouth County and at least three gas stations in Ocean County are now selling regular gas for $1.99 per gallon. The most northern of them is the Sunoco on Route 33 in Neptune. The owner said he dropped to $1.99 just after 9 a.m. this morning.

He said he is able to charge $1.99 because his supplier's price dropped. He plans on keeping the price for the rest of the day.

In Toms River, Ocean County, which is just south of Monmouth, at least three gas stations are reportedly also selling $1.99 for regular.

According to the AAA's Fuel Gauge Report, the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular in Monmouth and Ocean counties is $2.21 today, down about three cents overnight. The state average is $2.28.

The stations are:

Sunoco at 3321 Route 33, near West Bangs Avenue, in Neptune. Liberty Gas at 1194 Route 37 West, at Sumner Ave, in Toms River Wawa at 1680 Lakewood Road, at Stevens Road, in Toms River 7-11 at 1681 Route 9, in Toms River.
