Shell, partner agree to curb cig sales to kids

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - October 8, 2008 Attorney General Anne Milgram says the agreement means that Shell and Motiva Enterprises, its partner in a gas station joint venture, will adopt procedures that will reduce the sale of tobacco products to minors.

It's illegal to sell tobacco in New Jersey to people under the age of 19.

There are 259 Shell gasoline stations in New Jersey, all of which include on-site convenience marts that sell cigarettes, cigars and other tobacco products.

New Jersey has participated in similar multi-state agreements on tobacco sales at other gas stations and retail chains in the Garden State.
