TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Gas prices jumped up again in New Jersey and across the nation, which analysts attribute to continued high crude oil prices.

Drivers were paying an average of $2.24 a gallon a year ago at this time. The national average price for a gallon of regular gasoline was $3.30, up four cents from last week.

Drivers were paying $2.17 a gallon on average a year ago at this time.
