New Jersey 101.5 video
TRENTON — Motorists continue to see lower 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 $2.38. That's down 4 cents from last week.
Motorists were paying $1.71 for gas last year. A 23-cents-per-gallon gas tax increase went into effect Nov. 1.
This marks the third straight week that gas prices have fallen in New Jersey.
The national average gas price on Friday was $2.29, down 4 cents from last week. But that's much higher than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $1.83.
AAA says gas prices have been slowly decreasing in the region in recent weeks, which it says is typical for winter months.
