TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Gas prices in New Jersey are dropping as the Labor Day weekend and the end of the summer driving season approaches.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas Friday in New Jersey was $2.88, down two cents from last week. Motorists were paying $2.39 for gas in New Jersey at this time last year.

The national average gas price Friday was $2.85 a gallon, also down two pennies a gallon from last week. The national average a year ago was $2.34 a gallon.

Analysts say drivers hoping to get one last road trip in this summer could see savings at the pump, but there could also be a last-minute spike as demand increases closer to the holiday.
