NEW JERSEY – Gas prices nationwide have seen a small increase according to the AAA.
On Tuesday, the gallon of regular fuel rose about a penny from the day before. Average cost was $ 3,681, up from Monday when it was $ 3,674.
In our area, however, the average decreased slightly in both New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. See the table below with Tuesday’s prices slightly lower than Monday’s according to AAA.
|STATE||MONDAY GAS PRICE||GAS PRICE TUESDAY|
|NEW YORK||$ 3,764||$ 3,747|
|NEW JERSEY||$ 3,578||$ 3,561|
|CONNECTICUT||$ 3,443||$ 3,425|
The state of Connecticut has the lowest average gas price in the region ranging in value from $ 3,524 to $ 3,367. Our area is followed by the Garden State, also nationwide, averaging $ 3,687 to $ 3,525. The highest price is New York, which averages between $ 3,945 and $ 3,688.
This is not comparable to the prices reported during the summer which in some states exceeded $ 7 and in our area nearly $ 5 or more.
However, analysts still warn that hurricane season remains a “wildcard” that could disrupt oil production and refining along the Gulf coast.
