Wawa is reimbursing customers who have experienced car trouble after water was found in the gas at the station on Lacey Road
Many cars have broken down after fueling up at the Wawa on Lacey Road in Forked River, spokesperson Alexandra Dalgliesh said. “There was water in the gas,” Ed Tomasula of Lacey said. Tomasula’s daughter had stopped at Wawa yesterday to get gas. She made it home but when she went to start her brand new Mazda the next morning, it sputtered, he said. The car was brought to the mechanic, where they found water in the gas, to be drained and tuned, which will cost at least $500, Tomasula said. Certified mechanic at Lacey Shell Rich Ritchie has had to fix three cars so far and had three more coming later today. Ritchie said he has had a lot of inquiries about the incident and his customers were frustrated, as they have been left without …

J.P. Morgan anticipates opening by this time next year
A Chase bank will replace the old Wawa on the corner of Lacey Road and Manchester Avenue, Zoning Officer Nicole Casale said. The bank received board approval in May and a resolution was adopted in June but a site plan has yet to be submitted, she said. Jeremiah Delaney, Senior Project Manager, said they plan to demolish the old Wawa and build a new Chase branch, which will be their most current prototype design. Delaney could not provide a date for when J.P. Morgan will go before the Planning Board again. They anticipate starting construction in early March 2012 and hope to open in late August 2012, he said. Currently, the closest Chase bank is located on Main Street in Toms River.
