TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Motorists continue to see slightly lower prices at the pumps in New Jersey.
AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in the state on Friday was $1.97, down a penny from last week. That’s also lower than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $2.06.
This marks the second straight week that pump prices have fallen in New Jersey.
The national average price on Friday was $2.18, the same as last week. That’s also lower than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $2.31.
Analysts say gas prices will likely continue to fall in New Jersey over the next few months due to falling demand and the changeover to cheaper-to-produce winter gasoline.
