NJ Gas Price Hits The $3 A Gallon Mark

HAMILTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey gas prices have hit the $3 a gallon mark.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of regular gasoline in the Garden State hit the unwelcome level on Tuesday.

The current price is 47 cents a gallon more than a year ago, when the average was $2.53 a gallon.

Higher oil prices have raised gasoline pump prices above $3 a gallon in many parts of the country. AAA says the national average for regular gasoline on Tuesday was $3.07 a gallon, 41 cents higher than a year ago.

    MESSAGE TO NEW JERSEY: The cost of gas in other countries is about the equivilant of 4 to 5 American dollars to the gallon. In other words, stop whining. Use a bike or mass transit, if you need to get somewhere by yourself.
