Gas Prices Near $4 a Gallon Again with Election Day Arriving

With millions of New Jerseyans planning to cast their ballots on Tuesday, Democrats are facing political headwinds once again from gas prices, which have been rising recently after falling from historic highs.

According to AAA, the average cost for a gallon of gas in New Jersey is now $3.93, up 8 cents since last week and 40 cents from just a month ago. While still significantly lower than the record high of $5.05 per gallon in New Jersey set on June 13th, the creeping up of fuel prices are causing headaches again for motorists – and Democrats who want their votes.

In Ocean County, the average price for gas is now $3.96 a gallon, with the expectation that it will be over $4 a gallon by next week.

President Biden has released millions of barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve in an attempt to push prices down ahead of Election Day, and while they may have kept gas expenses from really shooting through the roof, the releases haven’t been able to keep prices from rising at all.
