At the pump. Gas prices level in New Jersey

| 11 Nov 2021 | 12:17

Gas prices remained high in New Jersey and crept up a bit more around the nation as a whole amid continued high crude oil prices.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in New Jersey on Friday was $3.45, the same as last week.

Drivers were paying an average of $2.19 a gallon a year ago at this time.

The national average price for a gallon of regular gasoline was $3.42 up two cents from last week.

Drivers were paying $2.11 a gallon on average a year ago at this time.

Analysts say a small dip in domestic demand ``may signal that the typical post-Labor Day drop-off was just a bit delayed this year.``

If the steady increase in crude prices eases, they say, ``consumers will likely see smaller price hikes at the pump.``
