AAA Mid-Atlantic says New Jersey gas prices rise again
TRENTON (AP) — Motorists continue to see higher prices at the pumps in New Jersey.
AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in the state on Friday was $2.60, up 4 cents from last week. But that's still much lower than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.49.
This marks the fourth straight week that pump prices have risen in New Jersey.
The national average price on Friday was $2.79, up 3 cents from last week. But that's also much lower than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.65
Analysts say pump prices will likely drop in the coming weeks, as crude oil prices become more stable and refineries complete their seasonal maintenance work.
