Gas Costs $9 a Gallon in Jersey

Some LukOil franchise stations in Pennsylvania and Jersey are charging $9.99 a gallon for gas on Wednesday. The move is part of a protest meant to demonstrate to their parent company that their cost is too high, causing LukOil owners to list higher retail prices than most of their competitors.

But Kezbari argued that he pays more per gallon of gas than competing Wawas charge their customers. He said LukOil refuses to reduce its fuel prices to franchise owners. []
