    Lowest price on regular gas in NJ, $2.89 per gallon. Highest cost, $4.89 from you'll never guess who, Exxon! Whooda thunk it? Of the 15 stations with the lowest prices, none are Exxon. However, Exxon occupies 7 of 15 slots in the highest priced stations in the state. Now, the low-price stations are not Joe's Gas, but companies such as Gulf, Shell and Sunoco.

    "Exxon: Solving the world's toughest energy challenges." Right. sure.

    Same with Pellets as Gas. Sometimes Pricing doesn't make sense


    Gas Exxon---------Shell, Sunoco

    Pellets Lowes--------Orscheln, Tractor Supply

    By the Ton
    Orscheln $4.04/bag TSC #1 $4.29 TSC #2 $4.79 ---------LOWES $5.99

    All within 25 Miles of me and all Somerset Premium Pellets.

    I thought you go to Lowes to SAVE MONEY !!!!!!

    Where is the buying power of the big boxes?

    You are quite aware ExxonMobil announced it's exit from the retail market of fuels last June ?

    and that local price is set by the local owner, not ExxonMobil ?


    They are only 2% of the world market and have a joint venture with Shell.
