New Jersey's Average Gas Price Is Among Lowest in the Country


Florham Park, NJ -- New Jersey gas prices remain among the lowest in the country, with Garden State motorists paying, on average, $1.90 for a gallon of regular gas, according to AAA. Today’s average price is a penny less than last week ($1.91), 12 lower than a month ago ($2.02). One year ago this time, New Jersey drivers were paying $2.36 for a gallon of regular gas.

“Mid-summer prices haven’t been this low since 2004,” said Cathleen Lewis, Director of Public Affairs & Government Relations for AAA Northeast in New Jersey. “That’s welcome news for families planning road trips ahead of the new school year.”

AAA’s most recent survey of gas prices finds the price for a gallon of regular gas averaging $2.12, which is 10 cents less than a month ago and 55 cents less than one year ago ($2.67).
