TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Motorists continue to see 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 $3.46, down 2 cents from last week. That’s also lower than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.65.
This marks the fifth straight week that pump prices have fallen in New Jersey.
Meanwhile, the national average price was $3.54 for the second straight week. But that’s still much lower than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.72.
Analysts expect that gas prices will continue to fall as the summer travel season comes to a close, even though crude oil prices continue to rise.
