    Self-serve gas never winds up lowering the price of gasoline overall. Check with other states that have gone this route.

    i have always enjoyed full service. Why would I want to smell like gas when I am going to dinner, am dressed nicely, or just in every day attire filling up and doing errands. Keep full service or offer self service at a DISCOUNT price.

    No Jerseyans pumping their own gas at the pumps.
    This stance may insure his election for Governor with many voters.

    What’s wrong with giving us a choice?

    You want someone to pump your gas? OK

    You prefer to do it yourself? OK

    The issue of safety has long ago been proved to be rediculous

    WHY would anyone WANT to pump their own gas ?!?! It’s probably one of the best thing about living in NJ IMO.
