TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Drivers 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 $2.55, which is down 1 cent from last week. Motorists were paying $2.24 for gas in New Jersey at this time last year.

This marks the third straight week that gas prices have fallen in New Jersey.

The national average gas price Friday was $2.49, down 3 cents from last week. But that’s still much higher than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $2.16.

Analysts say pump prices should continue to fall in the weeks ahead as demand declines.
