Gas prices have been going up for the past month. In fact, pump prices have risen almost 26 cents a-gallon in the Midwest since July 2nd.

In New Jersey, prices are up about 13 cents in the past week, according to Tom Kloza of the Oil Price Information Service.  In fact, prices have increased 25 cents over the past month.

Kloza sees lower prices for New Jersey from Labor Day on. He says the unknown factor will be where lower will start, whether it will be lower from $3.70 or higher.
