TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Motorists are finally seeing 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 $2.75, a drop of 4 cents from last week. That ends a two-week stretch where gas prices had risen by 42 cents in New Jersey following the double hit of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma in the nation’s Gulf Coast region.

Motorists were paying $1.97 for gas in New Jersey at this time last year. A 23-cents-per-gallon gas tax increase went into effect Nov. 1.
