TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Motorists continue to see lower 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 $1.59, down 3 cents from last week. That’s also much lower than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $2.11.

The national average price on Friday was $1.72, up 2 cents from last week. But that’s still much lower than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $2.27.

Analysts say gas prices could rise in the coming weeks, as refineries conduct annual maintenance and also start the process to bring summer-blend gasoline to the market.
