TRENTON, N.J. — Gas prices have stabilized in New Jersey but dropped a bit on average across the nation amid decreased demand.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in New Jersey on Friday was unchanged from last week at $2.19.

The national average price for a gallon of regular gasoline was $2.18, down two cents from $2.20.

Analysts say the summer driving season means more drivers behind the wheel, but fewer work commutes and travel opportunities means less demand than at the beginning of July — all that could mean lower gas prices.
