Drivers get break from rising gas prices in NJ, around USA

March 27, 2021 GMT

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Drivers are getting a bit of a break from rising gas prices in New Jersey and around the nation.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in New Jersey on Friday was $2.94, down a penny from a week ago. Drivers were paying an average of $2.23 a gallon a year ago at this time.

The national average price for a gallon of regular gasoline was $2.86, down two cents from last week. Drivers were paying an average of $2.06 a gallon a year ago at this time.

Analysts say crude prices dipped below $60 twice during the last week as supplies of both crude and gasoline have increased — but they caution that this doesn’t mean gas prices have hit their peak.
