Wayne, N.J., September 21, 2020 — New Jersey’s average gas price dropped by two cents this week to $2.19 this week ($2.21). Today’s price is three cents more expensive than a month ago ($2.16) and 40 cents cheaper than September 21, 2019 ($2.59). New Jersey’s average gas price is one cent higher than the national average.
AAA Northeast’s September 21st survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be $2.18, down one cent from the week prior ($2.19). Today’s national average price is the same as a month ago, and 48 cents cheaper than this day last year ($2.66).
“The majority of state averages have pushed cheaper by a penny or two since last Monday. With the nation entering the fall driving season, which typically sees fewer road trips, a continued drop in demand will likely lead to pump prices continuing to decrease,” said Robert Sinclair, Manager of Media Relations for AAA Northeast.
The average gas price dropped by a penny from last week in Connecticut to $2.19 ($2.20). In New York and Pennsylvania, the average price dropped by two cents to $2.26 and $2.48, respectively ($2.28, $2.50). Hawaii has the highest average for a gallon of gas, at $3.23/gallon, while Mississippi has the cheapest at $1.84/gallon.
