TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Drivers in New Jersey have been seeing gasoline prices drop with the falling temperatures.
AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in the state on Friday was $2.50, which is down 2 cents from last week. Motorists were paying $2.33 for gas in New Jersey at this time last year.
This marks the fifth straight week that gas prices have fallen in New Jersey.
The national average gas price Friday was $2.45, down 2 cents from last week. The national average from a year ago was $2.23.
Analysts expect demand for gasoline to weaken throughout the winter, which will mean lower prices at the pump.
