Over the past year, drivers in the USA have become increasingly more aware of how much they’re paying at the pumps. With gas prices having spiralled out of control, it makes sense to double check how much you’re paying. Gas prices dropped in New Jersey and around the nation at large amid a decline in crude oil prices. The Associated Press has the story:

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in New Jersey on Friday was $3.22, down eight cents from last week. Drivers were paying $3.62 a gallon on average a year ago at this time.
The national average price for a gallon of regular gasoline was $3.38, down four cents from last week. Drivers were paying $3.54 a gallon on average a year ago at this time.
AAA Mid-Atlantic says crude oil prices have fallen into the mid $70s per barrel, nearly $5 cheaper than a week ago. But analysts say the drop in prices may come to an end if gas demand keeps rising amid tightening domestic stocks.
