How NJ Compares to the Rest of the Country
Gas prices continue to fall in New Jersey and across the country.
The average price of a gallon of regular gasoline in the Garden State fell 11 cents from a week ago to today’s price of $4.17.
While the average price in New Jersey has fallen 63 days in a row and is now 88 cents cheaper than the June 13 high of $5.05, it is still nearly a dollar higher than on August 15, 2021 ( $3.20).
The average price of gasoline in New Jersey is also 22 cents higher than the national average, which is $3.95.
The decline in gasoline prices is mainly due to the stability of oil prices and the decrease in the number of drivers filling up.
“Falling prices at the pump could eventually get more drivers back on the road,” said Robert Sinclair Jr., senior director of public affairs for AAA Northeast.
Gas prices also continue to fall in neighboring states of New Jersey. The average price in Pennsylvania is $4.29, down nine cents from a week ago. New York motorists are paying $4.34, down eight cents from last week. Connecticut drivers dispense $4.11 at the pump, down 11 cents from a week ago.
