TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Motorists were seeing stable prices at the pumps in New Jersey.

AAA Mid-Atlantic said the average price of regular gasoline in the Garden State on Friday was $2.50, which is unchanged from a week ago.

But that’s more than a year ago, when New Jersey motorists were paying $2.33.

Meanwhile, the national average price fell 2 cents to $2.69. But that’s higher than the national average from a year ago, which was $2.47.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says gas prices will likely stay stable for at least the next few weeks. It cited lower demand for gas, record crude inventories and the nation’s slow economic recovery.
