Significant Decrease In Gas Tax Could Be Coming For New Jersey Drivers
Remember the days when $20.00 cash could almost fill your gas tank?
At this point....me neither.
I know...I know....I KNOW!
You are sick and tired of talking about New Jersey's skyrocketing gas prices. I am too.
So I hope you know that I would only bring up the topic again if it was truly worth it.
I finally have some good news...or decent news...to share.
According to News12.com, officials have proposed a new bill to help make the cost of gas more affordable.
It hasn't been given the green light just yet but I will give you all the information and you decide if you like this idea or not.
Let's take a look:
News On Gas Prices & Gas Tax In New Jersey
Listen....I know the sound of saving 28 cents per gallon doesn't sound like a lot.
But it's something! Let's do the math.
We already worked out how much it would cost for a smaller car, larger vehicle and a truck to fill their tanks when gas costs $4.30 per gallon.
Here's a reminder:
Car (12 gallons) - $51.60
Larger Vehicle (16 gallons) - $68.80
Truck (25 gallons) - $107.50
Those numbers are not pretty.
Now let's pretend this new bill was passed and approximately 28 cents is taken off the total cost of gasoline per gallon....aka $4.02.
Now let's run the numbers again:
Car (12 gallons) - $48.24
Larger Vehicle (16 gallons) - $64.48
Truck (25 gallons) - $100.75
When you look at the numbers side by side, there is no more than $7 or $8 bucks difference...but at the rate these prices are increasing, I will take it.
Everything is more expensive and every dollar counts. I don't think we should dismiss anything that could save us some cash.
All depending on how often you drive -- whether it be for work or play -- saving even just $6 bucks every time will rack up in no time.
So I am rooting for this bill!
Once you fill up and drive off, here is just a heads up on where to use more caution while using this oh so expensive gasoline:
