TRENTON, N.J. — Gas prices crept up for another week in New Jersey and around the nation as an increase in total domestic supply was offset by a reduction in demand.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in New Jersey on Friday was $2.92, up two cents from a week ago.

Drivers were paying an average of $2.00 a gallon a year ago at this time.

The national average price for a gallon of regular gasoline was $2.89, up one cent from last week.

Drivers were paying an average of $1.77 a gallon a year ago at this time.
