Wayne, N.J., December 13, 2021 — New Jersey’s average gas price today is $3.41, down one cent from last week ($3.42). Motorists are paying only four cents less than a month ago ($3.45), yet still over $1 ($1.12) more than this same time last year ($2.29). The average price in the Garden State is eight cents more than the national average.
AAA Northeast’s December 13th survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be $3.33, two cents cheaper than last week ($3.35) and eight cents cheaper than a month ago ($3.41). Nationally, on average, the price for a gallon of gas is $1.17 more than what drivers were paying this same time last year ($2.16).
““Gas prices tend to fall a bit this time of year due to the shorter days and less robust demand,” says Robert Sinclair, Senior Manager of Public Affairs for AAA Northeast. “And this trend was assisted by the recent steep drop in oil prices due to fears over the Omicron variant. But the variant’s impact on pricing appears to be fading, so it remains to be seen if oil prices stabilize or move higher.”
Gas prices dropped slightly around the region – down one cent in Connecticut and Pennsylvania to $3.52 and $3.56, respectively ($3.53, $3.57). The average gas price in New York dropped two cents to $3.52 ($3.54).
