It’s no secret, the gas price is high and by all indications we will see more increases due to the situation in Ukraine 🇺🇦 I’m not here to discuss the situation in Eastern Europe, but I’m here to talk about ours Gas prices here in Ocean County.
I recently filled up my tank and I don’t have a big car and it was $50 which is the most I’ve paid in a long time and I’m curious to see what Washington thinks when they say we can get more raises see. Accordingly news week, Vice President Harris said this weekend that “the fallout from a Russian invasion of Ukraine and subsequent economic sanctions would almost certainly result in rising energy costs, including gas prices, for US consumers.” So I think that means YES.
So obviously there’s not much we can do other than drive less. That’s not an option for many of us, so next we’ll see if we can find the cheapest prices so maybe some can save a bit. The only problem is if you live in a different part of the county than the cheapest gas there isn’t much point in driving miles and using gas to get there. So if we find a spot near you, why not take advantage of it, huh? Here are some of the prices we were able to find for this week.
