NJ Gasoline Prices Take Another Jump

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Motorists continue to see 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 $3.01, up 2 cents from a week ago.
That’s also higher than a year ago, when New Jersey motorists were paying $2.57.

Meanwhile, the national average price rose to $3.08, up a penny from last week. That’s also higher than the national average from a year ago, which was $2.71.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the higher pump prices in recent weeks have been caused by rising crude oil prices and a decline in the U.S. dollar, though the dollar has recently been rising against other major currencies.
