TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Motorists are seeing sharply 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 $2.36, up 11 cents from last week. But that’s still much lower than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.52.
This marks the third straight week that pump prices have risen in New Jersey.
The national average price on Friday was $2.51, up 8 cents from last week. But that’s also much lower than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.69.
Analysts say the higher pump prices are mostly due to rising crude oil prices.
