TRENTON, New Jersey — Motorists continue to see 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 $2.76, down 2 cents from last week. That's also much lower than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.11.
This marks the ninth straight week that gas prices have fallen in New Jersey.
The national average price on Friday was $2.91, down 4 cents from last week. That's also much lower than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.19.
Analysts say gas prices will likely continue to fall in the coming weeks. The lower prices are mostly due to abundant global oil production that has led to falling crude oil prices.
