TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Motorists continue to see higher prices at the pumps in New Jersey.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gasoline in the state on Friday was $3.55, up 2 cents from last week. That’s also much higher than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.31.

The national average price was $3.68, down a penny from last week. But that’s higher than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.53.

Analysts say the rising prices are due in part to higher crude oil prices spurred by ongoing tensions in the Ukraine.
