Gov. Jon S. Corzine's pilot program for self-service gas in New Jersey is a nice enough idea -- though it seems like a lot of effort, at taxpayer expense, to tell us what we already know.

Some say it will save us money if we eliminate the Full Service requirement for NJ gas stations. That won't stop the prices from increasing. I rather keep Full Service especially when it's raining or it's cold. Heck even when it's hot.

I live 1 mile from PA, a self serve state.The gas is more expensive.So self serve will put money in someones pocket but not the consumer.
Like everything else it sounds like a good idea if you don't know better but in reality it's a money making scheme.
When gas was $.40 you got full service,now that it's 3.00 you have to pump it yourself.
If you allow this,You deserve what you get.

Your exactly right, a panderizing decision designed to make it look like "something" is being done by NJ to address gas prices, when in fact it's all bs.

Like I said before, until a realistic alternative to fossil fuels is available, the hypocritical Democratic party should allow for the drilling of domestic areas like ANWAR.

You save maybe five cents per gallon by going to self service gas. Id rather pay the five cents and give a few people a job. Imagine how many jobs will be eliminated by going to self-serve gas in NJ.

I don't know why people keep on saying that you save money by pumping your own gas. Each state is different. With the rash of pump and dash (without paying in other states). Having an attendant at the pump will actually save the gas station owners money.

Gas in NY is more expensive than NJ, even though we have the option to pump our own. Don't give up on this luxury! You'll get nothing for it.

how lazy: "i hate going to states...that require me to do any labour whatsoever...its so difficult to get my fat ass out of my POS car".

1.) NJ is the only remaining state that has this pumped gas deal.

2.) do everyone a favour and dont leave NJ. It would be embarrasing if your lazy fat ass is representing an already tarnished state.

Full service is the way to go! I've lived in CT and NY, where you have to pump your own. This is one of those luxuries that other states envy. Hell, we have been ribbed long enough.

I have hyad it both ways. One problem with not pumping your own is that gas gets spilled on your car and not cleaned up. Eventaully a paint job? You say to top it off due to a trip and they don't they just let it click off. One time I had gas pumped and said $5 worth. They filled it. Then they wanted to argue with me. I had witnesses. They took my tag number and called the police. Is it worth it? I'll pump my own.

Hey Pavel. Must be prety lonely in Malta. Much wine and nothing to do but dream, huh? What you expect. In the middle of nowhere and nobody that wants you. You aren't Indian by the way, are you?
You guys don't get it. The truth behind the idea of self service at gas stations is a runaround way of taking jobs away for illegal immigrants. Don't wait. All Liberals and Bush-conservatives out there, start screaming. Corzine is trying to pull one over you.

Why anyone would want to pay extra to pump your own gas makes no sense to me. Full Service is the best value. In NJ, yes it's the law but in a state that has the highest property taxes, at lease we can say we're happy with our gas prices. Well not happy but you know what I mean.

I would LOVE it if NJ did away with the mandatory full service gas pumping.

It's usually much quicker to just jump out, swipe your card and pump your own gas.
