NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — There’s more good news for motorists this week as gas prices continue to drop.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says average prices dropped slightly over the last week, continuing a trend over the last month.

The national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline fell a penny to $3.47 last week. That price represents a 14-cent drop from a month ago and is seven cents lower than a year ago.

The news is even better in New Jersey, where average prices fell four cents in the last week to $3.32 per gallon. That’s 16 cents lower than a year ago.

AAA Mid-Atlantic expects prices to continue to fall as refineries gradually shift over to a less costly winter blend of gasoline.
