TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Gas prices dipped slightly in New Jersey but remained steady across the nation, although analysts expect more fluctuation for the rest of the summer. AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in New Jersey on Friday was $2.18, a penny less than the week before. The national average price for a gallon of regular gasoline was also $2.18, unchanged from the previous week. Analysts say gas prices are likely to fluctuate through the rest of the summer due to COVID-19 concerns, and they’ve been trending less expensive as demand continues to drop.
