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 $2.03, up a penny from last week. That’s also higher than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $1.96.

Analysts say gas prices continue to wobble as areas of the country impacted by Hurricane Matthew work to replenish their supplies and several refineries across the country address planned and unplanned facility maintenance issues.

The national average gas price on Friday was $2.23, down 2 cents from last week. That’s also lower than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $2.25.
