Seaside Heights “Thankful to be under a Tank-full”…


This sign on Lucky Leo’s at Hamilton and the Boardwalk shows the reality of gas prices these days.

Seaside Heights “Thankful to be under a Tank-full”: With $4.00 per gallon gas prices now a reality, the Jersey Shore tourism marketplace is anxious to see how fuel prices will affect the bottom line. Luckily, Ocean County beaches are less than a tank full of gasoline from New York and Philadelphia. Given that a trip to the shore is within easy economic reach of just about everyone, Seaside Heights businesses are making no secret that they are “thankful to be under a tank full.” Heavy Memorial Day crowds are a sign that the surge in gasoline prices is not keeping tourists away, but may even lead to more tourists who can no longer afford trips to places further away. Seaside Heights feels it is an exceptionally good bargain, with children under 12 always permitted on the beach for free, and free beach days for everyone Wednesday and Thursday, courtesy of Coca-Cola.
