No More Crossing the Hudson for Cheaper Gas?

In an early morning vote Tuesday, the Democrat-led New Jersey Assembly, with Republican Gov. Chris Christie’ support, passed sweeping legislation to raise New Jersey’s gasoline tax by 23 cents per gallon.

The bill funds road and bridge work, and slashes the state’s sales tax from 7 percent to 6 percent.
