I know I'm not the only one noticing gas prices going up in New Jersey.
As gas prices increase, the national average for the first week of March is $2.72. That's up compared to last year. It's the most expensive daily national average since August 2019, according to AAA.
New Jersey's average price for regular gas is a little over $2.80, according to AAA. When I fill up I use regular but if you use midgrade gas, the average is $3.17 and premium gas is going for $3.35.
The highest gas prices, according to the AAA report, are in California with the average gas price is $3.68. Very close to California are Hawaii, Washington, and Nevada, gas is $3 per gallon.
The reason for the gas increase, in the AAA report, the winter ice storm that basically shut Texas down and other states just a couple of weeks ago. Hoping for no hurricanes, "March could bring the most expensive pump prices of 2021", says a AAA spokesperson.
Here at the Shore, I feel gas prices jump up around Memorial Day Weekend. Summer gas prices, to me, always seem higher than the winter.
