AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of regular gasoline in New Jersey on Friday was $3.34, down 2 cents from last week. That's also nearly the same price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.30.

Meanwhile, the national average price rose 4 cents to $3.33. But that's 5 cents less than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.38.

Analysts say the higher national gas prices are due to a slow, steady increase in crude oil prices in recent days. But overall, they say gas prices should stay stable in the coming weeks.
