TRENTON – Legislation to allow retailers to offer rebates, and promotions for purchasing gasoline was advanced Thursday by an Assembly committee.

“Consumers benefit daily from savings through coupons, discounts and other promotions at just about every business in New Jersey, except for gas stations,” said Asm. Craig J. Coughlin (D-Middlesex). “That’s why this antiquated law needs changing. Gas is something most people have no choice but to buy, and this bill simply opens the door to more savings when New Jerseyans head to the pump. That’s a good thing by any measure.”

The bill (A-3133) stipulates that a consumer who earns credits through purchases on a credit card, debit card or rewards card may use those credits to receive a rebate or discount when purchasing gas.
