TRENTON, N.J. — Gas prices rose in New Jersey but dropped around the country as a whole amid decreasing demand and an increase in total domestic gasoline stocks.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in New Jersey on Friday was $2.21, up two cents from last week.

The national average price for a gallon of regular gasoline was $2.11, down two cents from the previous week.

Analysts expect demand to decrease in coming weeks with many states seeing rising COVID-19 cases and officials warning against holiday travel.
