TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Gas prices in New Jersey and across the nation are still falling amid decreased demand with fewer drivers on the road during the coronavirus epidemic. AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in New Jersey on Friday was $2.22, down nine cents from a week ago.

Drivers were paying $2.67 a gallon a year ago at this time.

The national average gas price Friday was $2.05, down 12 cents from a week ago. A year ago, motorists were paying $2.67 a gallon.

Analysts say that as the price of crude oil drops to levels not seen since the early 2000s, gasoline prices are following suit.
