TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Motorists are seeing slightly 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 $1.57, up a penny from last week. But that’s still much lower than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $2.26.

The national average price on Friday was $1.81, up 8 cents from last week. But that’s still much lower than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $2.45.

Analysts say gas prices will likely continue to rise in the coming weeks, as refineries conduct annual maintenance and some refineries cut production due to abundant supplies of gasoline.
