Wayne, N.J., January 10, 2021 — New Jersey’s average gas price today is $3.38, unchanged from last week. Motorists are paying only four cents more than a month ago ($3.42), but 92 cents more than this same time last year ($2.46). The average price in the Garden State is eight cents more than the national average.
AAA Northeast’s January 10th survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be $3.30, two cents higher than last week ($3.28) and three cents cheaper than a month ago ($3.33). Nationally, on average, the price for a gallon of gas is 99 cents more than what drivers were paying this same time last year ($2.31).
“According to new data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), total domestic gasoline stocks rose by 10.1 million barrels last week. On the other hand, gasoline demand decreased from 9.72 million barrels per day to 8.17,” said Robert Sinclair, Senior Manager of Public Affairs for AAA Northeast. “Typically, pump prices decline due to lower gas demand and a rise in total stocks, but continued growth in the price of crude oil has helped keep pump prices from falling any significant amount.”
Gas prices held steady in all neighboring states – $3.49 in Connecticut, $3.48 in New York and $3.52 in Pennsylvania.
