TRENTON, N.J. (AP) _ Motorists 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 $2.57, down 2 cents from last week. That’s also much lower than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.52.
This marks the fourth straight week that pump prices have fallen in New Jersey.
The national average price on Friday was $2.76, the same price as last week. That’s also much lower than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.59.
Analysts say it’s not clear if pump prices will rise or fall in the coming weeks, noting that demand often increases in the summer months.
