It is winter and of course when Old Man Winter is in town, it’s “pothole” season. As the temperatures go down the number of horrible “potholes” go up.

Nothing worse then your car smashing through a pothole that snuck up on you and your car feels like the wheels are falling off. How many times do you go and get a front end alignment and tire rotation, only to smash into a pothole 5 minutes after you leave your mechanic. It’s annoying and can be expensive.

Now who is to blame? It’s hard to control every inch of every roadway in Ocean County. The pothole outbreak happens every year, possibly the best defense is a good offense? Is there new ways to pave that reduces future potholes? I don’t know the answer to this, but as we build more rockets to fly to space I hope we will also take some time to come up with a roadway that doesn’t disintegrate into rubble…

I asked YOU to let me know what roads you think are the worst “pothole roads”. I want to mention one I run into a lot. It a portion of Center Street in Tuckerton (Photos In Article) it is a mess, so bad in one section it feels like your driving on a cobblestone road.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
