New Jersey Gas Prices Down Again
Motorists are still seeing slightly lower prices at the pumps in New Jersey.
AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gasoline in New Jersey on Friday was $3.38, down 2 cents from last week. It's also more than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.30. The highest prices in the survey were found in the Trenton area while the lowest price was in Burlington County.

Meanwhile, the national average price fell by 8 cents to $3.51. But that's higher than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.37.
“Prices at the pump continue to decline, which is welcome news for vacationers and day-trippers ready to ramp up summer travel,” said Tracy Noble, spokesperson for AAA Mid-Atlantic. “Those traveling for the Independence Day holiday this week should see stable prices; however AAA cautions that gas prices could rise into July as summer travel heats up. A seasonal uptick would not be unusual, as prices have increased double-digits during the month of July the past two years.”
