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 New Jersey on Friday was $3.18, down 3 cents from last week. That’s also much lower than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.60.

The national average price was $3.32, down 4 cents from last week. That’s also much lower than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.60.

Analysts say the falling prices are mostly due to abundant gas supplies, flat demand and the shift to winter-blend fuels.
