TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Motorists continue to see 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 $2.42. That’s down 2 cents from last week.

Motorists were paying $1.74 for gas last year. A 23-cents-per-gallon gas tax increase went into effect Nov. 1.

The national average gas price on Friday was $2.33, down 2 cents from last week. But that’s much higher than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $1.88.

AAA says gas prices have been slowly decreasing in the region. It notes that demand for gas has eased following the holiday driving period while gas supplies remains adequate.
