Ever since the Wawa opened up near the Hess headquarters in Woodbridge, they keep leap-frogging each other's price lower on Rt 9. I hope Wawa doesn't go out of business because I am loving the prices that are almost lowest in the state.

Cool info. Guess those NY drivers have another reason to visit Jersey!

two cents difference is hardly a price war. There is no war between these 3 places, and the Wawa hasn't taken any business away from Hess. Because of the proximity to the Outerbridge, the Wawa and the Hess on West Pond Road get the flow of traffic from NY that fill up at the first gas stations they see, that's who supports the Wawa, not the locals. The Wawa's 3.31 is about 60 cents less than they pay in Staten Island. There is NO price war.

Guess Wawa won. Hess is going out of the gas retailing business.

That's good but I still get gas at Costco in Edison. They have the lowest prices.

That particular Wawa has been consistently $0.02 higher than the nearby Hees stations for the past 2 weeks.

Haven't seen a Hess in years and never heard of Wawa.

I used to live in NJ and know where the Hess HQ is and have gone to many a Wawa store, but they didn't pump gas at that time.

Wawa is now coming to Florida. It will be interesting to see if displace some of the other gas stations/convenience stores.

We have several brands of gas available in Detroit, and our prices are higher than the national average.
Instead of competing with each other, they actually seem to be setting prices together.

Neither of them stations in this area. This would be a good post for a local forum.

Local forums work better for this. I'm not going to New Jersey.

That's nice, but I really don't care what happens locally in Woodbridge, NJ.

Sorry, but as you're telling this to Gas Buddy members across the United States and Canada, rather than in your local New Jersey discussion category, is this something I should be taking advantage of? I have no idea where Woodbridge is. Is it in New Jersey, or adjacent Pennsylvania, Delaware, or New York? Maybe you can let us now where the Hess headquarters is. I don't know where that is either.

Why would you think that Wawa, a company that's been in business a long time, would go out of business? Are you saying you know something about their financial situation I (for one) haven't heard about? I just checked the internet but I can't find anything that indicates that Wawa may be going out of business because of this price war.

But thanks for the head's up and I'm sure that others will appreciate knowing about this price war, maybe plan on making a trip to get gas after you tell us where we have to go.

This belongs in the local discussion thread. Except for members that live near Woodbridge, I doubt if others throughout the US and Canada really care.
