Bergen County, NJ
Just in time for the Christmas rush, the price of a barrel of crude oil has continued to drop further this week. This caused gas prices to dip to a US average of $2.44, prices not seen in a number of years. Gas is currently averaging $2.44 in New Jersey and $2.70 in New York. Parts of the Garden State are even reporting $2.15 in certain location such as Hawthorne and Clifton. While NYC’s lowest price was $2.42 spotted at Sonomax gas station in Brooklyn.
This news is a blessing for drivers and delivery companies that saw the highest gas prices in years during memorial day weekend. While I am definitely not complaining, can you imagine if NJ did not pass the .23 cent gas tax of 2016, we would be seeing prices below 2 bucks a gallon.
Most experts agree that prices will continue to drop after the New Year.
