AAA Mid-Atlantic: NJ Gas Prices Continue To Fall

TRENTON, NJ (AP) – Motorists continue to see lower prices at the pumps in New Jersey.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of regular gasoline on Friday was $3.63, down 4 cents from last week. But that’s still much higher than the cost a year ago, when New Jersey motorists were paying $2.61. Meanwhile, the national average price dropped by 8 cents to $3.60. That’s also much higher than the national average from a year ago, which was $2.75.

This marks the fifth straight week that gas prices have fallen. And analysts remain hopeful that trend will continue as the summer driving season shifts into high gear with the upcoming July 4th holiday weekend.

    was getting absolutely sick of paying over $3 at the pump. I decided to do something about it, I did some serious Googling in my quest for lower prices, I came across this unique buying club called, I immediately joined them and then when I fill up, I keep the receipt and enter it into the website to get a 10% rebate on the amount I spent for gas. However, there is an upper limit that you can do each month I think it is $200 or something like that — but believe me an extra couple of hundred bucks a month gives my family our weekly trip to the movies again… or you can always buy more gas.. LOL. Here’s the link

    Don’t be so happy until prices are well under $3.00 per gallon…we’re still being ripped off by the commodity traders and by the oil companies. Juar wait until the profit reports for the first and second calendar quarters of 2011 are announced. Hopefully, that will make you mad as hell!

    Some of you may remember that I cautioned several months ago, when all of these horrendous, daily price increases started, that the prices would drop to a somewhat lower level that would make everyone feel relieved, even though the prices wouldn’t decline to the original level. Don’t be fooled AND don’t become complacent!! The overall trend IS, and will continue to be, UP!
