Prices at the pump are lower than they have been in years. For months now reduced gas prices have been delighting New Jersey drivers, but some speculators think we are just about to hit the bottom. In an article from NJ.com, Tom Klosa, founder of Oil Price Information Service, said “I think we will bottom out between now and Martin Luther King weekend. This is way beyond what we expected. The lowest price I heard is $1.80 (a gallon) and that is close to cost.”
Whether the experts are right or not, all drivers are happy to get a little relief at the pump. Plymouth Rock in New Jersey has pulled together some resources to help you get the most out of your gas budget regardless of the price.
