TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Motorists are still seeing higher prices at the pumps in New Jersey.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gasoline in New Jersey on Friday was $3.39, up 3 cents from last week. But that’s still much lower than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.64.

The increase marks the third straight week that pump prices have risen in New Jersey.

Meanwhile, the national average price rose by 6 cents to $3.62. That’s still lower than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.72.

Analysts say the rising prices are due to higher crude oil prices and positive domestic economic news.
