The price of gasoline keeps rising, but many service stations across the Garden State will be offering motorists big discounts at the pump on Friday.

As part of an effort to change state law and allow self-serve gas, Sal Risalvato, the executive director of the New Jersey Gasoline, C-Store and Automotive Association, said a total of six dozen gas stations will lower the price of gas “by the amount that they would discount gasoline if they were in fact allowed to offer self-serve gasoline.”

How much will prices drop?

He said the self-serve Day of Awareness discounts will be offered all day on Friday. Savings should be from 7 to 23 cents a gallon.

He said surveys done with gas station owners indicate the cost of labor to pump a gallon of gas is between 7 and 23 cents.

How can they do that?

Risalvato said participating gas stations will not make any profit at all on Friday, and it’s possible some could lose money, but it’s worth it to drive home the point that a self-serve option in New Jersey is important.

He said such a system would allow gas stations to operate with fewer employees, which is important because many stations are having problems finding workers due to the ongoing labor crunch.

It would also save motorists money at a time when gas prices keep climbing to new record highs.


He said when motorists pull into one of the 78 stations offering discounted gas on Friday they will be asked to contact their legislators “to let them know that they support the idea of having a choice, the option at the pump, of pumping it themselves.”

The following stations will be offering discounts on the price of gas on Friday.
