STATE – It’s no secret to drivers. Gas prices are going up.
New Jersey joined 30 other states and Washington D.C., overnight, reaching a statewide $3.00 average for the first time since March of 2008 for a gallon of regular serve, according to the AAA Fuel Gauge Report.
Nationally, the $3.07 average is an increase of 13 cents since last month and 41 cents more than the same gallon last year.
Alaska pumps the most expensive average gallon nationwide, at $3.52, while Utah pumps the lowest, at $2.81.
New Jersey’s $3.00 average is:
- 47 cents more than a year ago
- A penny more than yesterday
- Nine cents more than a month ago.
“It’s an unwelcome membership to an expensive club,” AAA Mid-Atlantic spokesman Tracy Noble said.
AAA’s Fuel Finder website allows consumers to find prices at individual gas stations.
