The Fuel Followup: Your Opinions on Gassing up in Jersey [Followup]

Flickr user Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources

I really like to put polls up and let you have your say. We generally talk about it on the air a few times and that’s that. But this topic really sparked a firestorm on our Facebook page and here at

A few days ago I asked, if you had the option here in New Jersey, would you pump your own gas? Over the course of the next three days, the comments and votes went back and forth a lot. Here are a few comments:




George from Brick said:

“I want to be able to pump it myself. Can’t tell you how many times I have caught the attendants saying they have pumped twenty bucks worth, but actually only pumped eighteen”

While Dee commented:

“Pump it for me. How much time are you really saving by doing it yourself? 3-5 mins? We all rush way too much anyway. I love being a Jersey girl who DOES NOT have to pump her own”

So we definitely had a mix of strong opinions. Here’s what the latest results looked like as of this morning:

Here’s what’s interesting when we take a look at that – just under half of you prefer to have an attendant pump your gas, but when we put the next two choices together, pumping yourself or having the option between to pump or not to pump, just barely over half of you fell into those categories.

So, all in all, I think this is what we can take from this…even after all the votes and all the comments, here in New Jersey we’re still practically evenly split on over whether it’s better to pump your own gas or not.

Thanks to all of you for the votes and the great comments between Facebook and, we love getting these great debates going!
