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

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of regular gasoline in New Jersey on Friday was $3.31, the same cost as last week.

But that’s still much higher than it was a year ago, when motorists were paying $2.76.

Meanwhile, the national average price rose 2 cents to $3.44. That’s also much higher than the national average from a year ago, which was $2.86.

Gas prices usually fall around this time of year, but analysts say a mix of good and bad economic news both in the U.S. and abroad have kept crude oil prices volatile in recent days.
