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 gas in the state on Friday was $2.56, up 2 cents from last week. But that’s still much lower than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.50.

This marks the third straight week that pump prices have risen in New Jersey.

The national average price on Friday was $2.76, up 2 cents from last week. But that’s also much lower than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.66

Analysts say pump prices will likely drop in the coming weeks, as oil prices become more stable and refineries complete their seasonal maintenance work.
