Gas prices unchanged in New Jersey, increase across country
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Drivers in New Jersey are still seeing little movement of gas prices despite an average increase across the country.
AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in the state on Friday was $2.35, unchanged from last week but a 30-cent drop from the price at this time a year ago.
The national average gas price Friday was $2.27 a gallon, up three cents from last week — but also a 30-cent drop from the national average a year ago.
Analysts say crude oil prices, which have increased almost $8.00 since the start of the year, will determine whether drivers see slightly cheaper or more expensive gasoline prices in coming weeks.
