TRENTON, N.J. — Gas prices jumped up in New Jersey and around the nation in anticipation of hurricane-related supply and distribution disruptions.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in New Jersey on Friday was $2.23, up from $2.16 the week before.

The national average price for a gallon of regular gasoline was also $2.23, up from $2.18 the previous week.

Analysts say that since gasoline stock levels are ample, any significant increases in pump prices should be confined to the impacted areas while “the rest of the country sees minimal change.”
