Gas Prices Rise Due to Higher Crude Oil Prices and Summer-Blend GasLast Edited:
AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in New Jersey is $2.77, which is up nine cents since last week and 22 cents from last month.
When compared to this time last year, drivers are paying nearly 38 cents more at the pump.
Across the country, drivers are seeing prices increase as well, with the national average up 5 cents from last week.
AAA says gas prices are expected to continue to rise due to higher crude oil prices, diminishing supplies and the seasonal switchover to summer-blend gasoline.
