TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Drivers in New Jersey and around the nation are seeing a dip in prices at the pump, but analysts warn that the recent declines may soon be over as the July 4 holiday approaches.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in New Jersey on Friday was $2.87, down three cents from last week. Motorists were paying $2.28 for gas in New Jersey at this time last year.

The national average gas price Friday was $2.85 a gallon, down a penny from last week. The national average a year ago was $2.24 a gallon.

Analysts say the decline in gas prices since Memorial Day could change just as the holiday approaches - but that isn’t expected to deter a record number of travelers.
