I was planning on filling my car up halfway in New York, and then topping off in New Jersey because gasoline is cheaper there. Before heading out, though, I had a change of heart- my gas taxes pay for road maintenance in my home state, and I'd rather spend more money at a place owned by a local guy I'm on a first name basis with, with the tax revenue going to my community, than to spend my money in New Jersey, where the asshole governor held up a major trans-Hudson rail project. I decided to spend a couple of dollars more and have it go to a better place- it's worth the extra money just to withold a lesser sum from Chris Christie's regime. Also, my favored route is the westerly one diagonally through Pennsylvania, so I avoid the New Jersey Turnpike tolls.
