The worst-in-the-nation congestion of the New York-New Jersey metropolitan area causes the trucking industry to lose $3 billion a year in the Garden State alone, accounting for nearly 5 percent of congestion costs nationwide.
Aside from the 23 cent gas tax hike that went into affect last month, I'm probably not the only one noticing gas prices slowly creeping up as of late.
Gas was $2.43 a gallon at Wawa this morning. It wasn't too long ago (before the gas tax) that prices were only a little higher than $2 a gallon.
The infamous gas tax went into effect on Tuesday, November 1st here in the Garden State. Your wallet just got a little bit lighter... However, one NJ pizzeria owner wants to give you a discount for getting screwed by the government!
