Posted: December 31st, 1969

Florham Park, N.J., January 21, 2019 — New Jersey’s average gas price increased by one cent from last week to $2.35 ($2.34). Today’s price is seven cents cheaper than a week ago ($2.42). Year-over-year, today’s average price is 27 cents cheaper than January 21, 2018 (($2.62).

AAA Northeast’s January 21st survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be $2.24, unchanged from last week. Today’s national average price is 10 cents cheaper than a month ago ($2.34) and 29 cents cheaper than one year ago ($2.53).

“If demand remains seasonally low amid continued growth in gasoline stocks across the country, Americans may see pump prices remain low for the remainder of winter – assuming there are no unforeseen spikes in oil prices,” said Robert Sinclair Jr., Manager of Media Relations for AAA Northeast.

Around the region, the average price for a gallon of gas in Connecticut and New York today is $2.52, down two cents from last week ($2.54). The average gas price in Pennsylvania is $2.47, unchanged from last week.
