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 the state on Friday was $3.43, down 3 cents from last week. That’s also lower than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.58.
This marks the fourth straight week that gas prices have fallen in New Jersey.
The national average price on Friday was $3.53, down a penny from last week. That’s also slightly less than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.58.
Analysts say greater than expected gasoline production at the nation’s refineries has spurred the lower pump prices, despite ongoing concerns about simmering geopolitical tensions.
