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 $2.15, up 3 cents from last week. But that’s still much lower than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $2.54.

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

The national average price on Friday was $2.32, up 5 cents from last week. But that’s still much lower than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $2.74.

Analysts say gas prices are rising due higher crude oil prices brought about by unexpected declines in oil production in various parts of the world.
