Gas prices drop still further in NJ, around nation

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Gas prices have dropped still further in New Jersey and around the nation amid lower demand after the end of the summer driving season. AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in New Jersey on Friday was $3.63, down 11 cents from last week. The national average price for a gallon of regular gasoline was $3.69, down four cents from last week. Analysts are still warning, however, that hurricane season remains a “wild card” that could disrupt oil production and refining along the Gulf Coast.
