TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Motorists are seeing slightly lower 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 $2.43. That’s down a penny from last week.

Motorists were paying $2.03 for gas at this time last year. A 23-cents-per-gallon gas tax increase went into effect Nov. 1.

The slight price drop ends a four-week stretch where gas prices had risen in New Jersey.

The national average gas price on Friday was $2.40, down 2 cents from last week. But that’s much higher than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $2.17.

AAA says drivers will likely see higher pump prices in the coming weeks as demand for gas increases.
