Motorists are seeing slightly higher prices at the pumps in New Jersey.

 

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Motorists are seeing slightly higher prices at the pumps in New Jersey.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in the state on Friday was $2.33. That's up a penny from last week.

Motorists were paying $1.90 for gas last year. A 23-cents-per-gallon gas tax increase went into effect Nov. 1.

The national average gas price on Friday was $2.23, up 3 cents from last week. But that's much higher than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $2.01.

AAA says gas prices have risen steadily since OPEC's announcement on Nov. 30 that it was cutting production.
