TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Motorists are seeing slightly higher prices at the pumps in New Jersey.
AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gasoline in the state Friday was $3.29, up 2 cents from last week. But that’s still lower than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.36.
The national average price was $3.25, down a penny from last week. But that’s lower than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.30.
Analysts say the pump prices should stay somewhat stable in the coming weeks. While the lingering effects of maintenance work at several refineries in the Gulf Coast region are waning, improving economies in the United States and abroad have helped boost crude oil prices.
