TRENTON, NJ - New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said earlier this week during a radio show that he opposes legislation for self-service gasoline stations because most residents don��t want it, the Associated Press reports.

While campaigning for governor in 2009, Christie had proposed allowing self-serve gas. However, he later dropped the proposal after receiving sharp pushback from residents.

Christie said New Jersey��s gas prices are among the lowest in the country. New Jersey is one of only two states �" Oregon is the other �" that doesn��t allow drivers to pump their own gas.
