TRENTON, New Jersey — Motorists are seeing slightly higher prices at the pumps in New Jersey.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gasoline in the state on Friday was $3.27, up 2 cents from last week. But that's still lower than the price from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.51.

The price increase ends an eight-week stretch where gas prices had fallen in New Jersey.

The national average price on Friday was $3.44, the same price as last week. But that's still lower than the national average from a year ago, when motorists were paying $3.59.

Analysts say gas prices will likely stay stable or decrease in the coming weeks, now that the summer travel season has come to an end.
