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 $1.80, up 8 cents from last week. But that’s still much lower than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $2.17.

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

The national average price on Friday was $2.03, up 6 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 some refineries continue their annual maintenance and demand for gas increases.
