Well the good news, many Empire State residents can fill up for a discount today, Friday, May 13. Of course, there is a catch. You are going to have to travel to New Jersey.

Seventy-five New Jersey gas stations are lowering prices today. Its thanks to the "Fuel Your Way NJ Self-Serve Day of Awareness" campaign. The campaign hopes to get the public on board with allowing self-service gas in the Garden State. New Jersey is the only state in the United States that doesn't allow its drivers to pump their own gas

Some New Jersey lawmakers are hoping to pass a bill that would allow Garden State gas stations to offer self-service.


Discounted gas will vary by location but officials say drivers can expect a 15 to 20 cent discount at the 75 participating gas stations. A number of the gas stations are in Bergen County, not far from Orange and Rockland counties.
