no lines for fuel

I learned that traveling on the week of the 4th like many others did causes long lines for gas at the rest stops. However stopping at a truck stop for fuel has its benefits. No lines and faster pumps.

In N.J. those are the only places I go. They have the larger diameter hoses and the prices are usually better....

They made me go to the non-truckstop one in my VW.

Of course, there was no line for auto diesel either.

The photo was in Delaware but I only put enough to get me to northern NJ as that is where I filled up due to the much lower price compared to CT. We fly out of Newark quite often and never leave NJ without a full tank.

And you don't have to pump it if you don't want to.... Unless you go to a truck stop (only diesel)...

$3.69 for premium 93 paid in cash yesterday. It was $39.90 to fill it up from 1/4 tank (on the gauge) - first time in a long time I've been able to fill up from that point for under $40!

I remember in high school going to fill up my Acura Integra for under $20. 99c a gallon and I could drive on that for what felt like 2 weeks.
