TRENTON, N.J. — Drivers saw another week of increasing gas prices in New Jersey and around the nation, but analysts say increased gasoline stocks and a decrease in demand are helping to slow the rate of increase.
AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in New Jersey on Friday was $2.95, up five cents from a week ago.
Drivers were paying an average of $2.32 a gallon a year ago at this time.
The national average price for a gallon of regular gasoline was $2.88, also up five cents from last week.
Drivers were paying an average of $2.19 a gallon a year ago at this time.
