Gas prices ticked down a bit more in New Jersey but increased across the nation as a whole, which analysts say may indicate the end of the plunge as states reopen following coronavirus-related closures.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in New Jersey on Friday was $1.99, down a penny from a week ago. Drivers were paying $2.93 a gallon a year ago at this time.

The national average gas price Friday was $1.82, up a nickel from a week ago. Drivers were paying $2.88 a gallon a year ago at this time
