Motorists are seeing slightly higher 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, up a penny from last week. But that’s still much lower than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $2.67.
The slight price increase ends a two-week stretch where pump prices had fallen in New Jersey.
The national average price on Friday was $2.05, unchanged from last week. But that’s still much lower than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $2.73.
Analysts say prices will likely fall or stay stable in the coming weeks, noting that demand for gas normally declines this time of year.
