$25 For 1 Gallon of Gas in NJ

Unlike the government red tape and price controls which have resulted in up to 7-10 hour waits for gasoline in New Jersey as an estimated 80% of NJ gas stations remain closed (either out of gas, no electricity to pump it, or both), the free market is willing to provide necessary fuel…at the right price of course.
Which apparently is currently $25 a gallon in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

From Craigslist:


While public officials ‘protect’ locals from price gouging, in reality the only thing the officials are protecting locals from is the free market incentive for providing the gasoline needed to power vehicles and generators- resulting in massive shortages and day-long lines.  The same things price controls cause 100% of the time they are utilized.
