Two New Jersey gas stations have settled claims that they jacked up fuel prices at the pump following Superstorm Sandy. 

Though the two stations in Clifton and Piscataway have agreed to pay a combined $46,000 to end the price gouging law suits, neither company admitted to any wrongdoing, according to a report on NBC40.net.

The settlement states the station in Clifton hiked the cost of regular gas from $3.49 to $4.69. The Piscataway station upped the cost from $3.79 to $4.49, according to state attorney general and consumer affairs officials.

The two stations are among 24 businesses sued by the state last year for gouging gas prices after Sandy, an act prohibited by state law during and 30 days after a state of emergency.
