New Jersey Gas Prices Rise Again

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Motorists are still seeing sharply higher prices at the pumps in New Jersey.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of regular gasoline in the Garden State on Friday was $2.70, up 8 cents from a week ago.

That’s also higher than a year ago, when New Jersey motorists were paying $2.29.

Meanwhile, the national average price rose 5 cents to $2.83. That’s also higher than the national average from a year ago, which was $2.49.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the rising prices are again due to the weak U.S. dollar and recent surges in the price of crude oil, which has been trading above $80 a barrel in recent weeks.

Higher oil prices mean refiners pay more for crude to make gasoline and other refined products.

    You know, I got ticked off about gas prices and went out to do something about it – now I don’t worry too much.
    There’s a membership club called FillerUp Club that works like Sam’s Club or Costco. You buy your gas normally, and monthly you get 50% refunded back to you!
    It’s been up and running for 9 months now, and paying like clockwork.
    Here’s a blog I put some additional information on about it:
