Motorists are seeing stable gas prices in New Jersey.
AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular in New Jerseyon Friday was $2.28, the same price as the previous week.
Motorists were paying $1.78 per gallon last year. A 23-cents-per-gallon tax increase went into effect Nov. 1.
The unchanged price ends a four-week stretch in which prices had fallen in New Jersey.
The national average price on Friday was $2.29, the same price as the previous week. But that’s much higher than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $2.01.
AAA says flat crude-oil prices have helped keep gas prices stable.
