TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Motorists are seeing stable prices at the pumps in New Jersey.
AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gasoline in the state on Friday was $3.49, the same price as last week. But that’s still higher than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.40.
The national average price was $3.65, down a penny from last week. That’s slightly more than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.63.
Analysts warn that drivers could soon see higher prices at the pumps, noting that crude oil prices have been rising in recent days due to rising tensions and violence in Iraq.
