In 2016, your state legislators in Trenton voted to hike your NJ gas tax by an astronomical 23 cents per gallon.
But that wasn't the end of it. No, not by a long shot.
Because the swindlers in Trenton had more up their sleeves via a sneaky little provision in the bill.
So now, Governor Murphy & Co. have announced that New Jersey's gas will rise another 4.3 cents per gallon on Oct. 1.
How can THAT happen? The law now stipulates that if the original gas tax brings in less than expected, the state can raise the rate to keep it on target.
The state says that this year motorists bought less gasoline in New Jersey (what a shocker!) and revenues are lagging. So, they'll raise the gas tax just like that -- and you'll pay another $300 per year, on average.
