TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Motorists are seeing 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 $1.98, up 5 cents from last week. But that’s much lower than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $2.78.

The price hike ends a two-week stretch where pump prices had fallen in New Jersey.

The national average price on Friday was $2.22, up 4 cents from last week. But that’s much lower than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $2.96.

Analysts say the price increases are due to rising oil prices and seasonal maintenance that has temporarily shuttered some refineries
