TRENTON, New Jersey — Motorists continue to see sharply lower prices at the pumps in New Jersey.
AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in the state on Friday was $2.55, down 10 cents from last week. That's also much lower than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.29.
This marks the thirteenth straight week that gas prices have fallen in New Jersey.
The national average price on Friday was $2.60, down 11 cents from last week. That's also much lower than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.25.
Analysts say the lower prices are mostly due to abundant global oil production that has led to falling crude oil prices.
