$10 Gas?

10 Dollar GasGas is already high enough as it is… Every time we drive past those signs, we all let out a little sigh.

But we haven’t seen anything like what the folks in New Jersey saw.

Drivers did a double take when they saw the posted price of gas at some local stations, showing nearly $10 a gallon.  The owners of nearly 50 Lukoil gas stations across the state were angry over something called “zone pricing”. That’s when a refinery sells fuel at different prices to gas stations, depending on location and customers.  Franchisees wanted to draw attention to it, and are fighting back against their parent company.
