To the editor:

Your writer, M.G. (Maggie Gram?), scoffs at the possibility that minimum-wage jobs at gasoline filling stations could move from New York State to New Jersey (“THE GOP ON MINIMUM WAGE: $5.15 IS HIGH ENOUGH,” August 12-25). The price difference for gasoline between New York and New Jersey is already great enough that there are but few filling stations in Rockland and Orange Counties near the New Jersey line (and lots on the Jersey side). An increase in New York’s minimum wage, which would raise the price of gasoline in New York, would reduce New York’s numbers further still. Filling-station jobs would indeed be transferred from New York to New Jersey. There is no such thing as a free lunch.
