TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Motorists continue to see 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 $1.72, up 7 cents from last week. But that’s still much lower than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $2.21.

The national average price on Friday was $1.97, up 8 cents from last week. But that’s still much lower than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $2.42.

Analysts say gas prices may continue to rise in the coming weeks, as refineries continue their annual maintenance. They also cite stronger demand for gas, declining supplies and higher crude oil supplies.
