Gas prices are going up once again in New Jersey.

It seems like a strange thing, summer is over and gas prices are still on the rise in New Jersey and across the country. Gas prices are more than $1 per gallon high than they were last year.

The average price of a gallon of regular gas in New Jersey last week was up a couple of cents from two weeks ago at $3.25. Last year, believe it or not, we were paying around $2.30 last year this time. In the country, in New Jersey, we are not the highest and we are not the lowest, according to gasprices.aaa.com. We are second highest next to the west coast.

But, from a year ago we've gone up. In 2018 it was the highest we've ever seen at $4.11 for a regular fill-up. Wow, that's crazy, I think I do remember that.

If we were to look at the current average of regular gas, it's $3.27. Yesterday we were at an average of $3.26 in New Jersey. A week ago, regular gas would cost you $3.22 and a month ago regular gas would cost you $3.21.

So, I would love your help. If you get gas today, jot down the amount. If you see a little cheaper than $3.27 for regular, let me know, sue.moll@townsquaremedia.com. I'd love to put a list together helping our neighbors and friends out on where to find the cheapest gas in Ocean County. I love asking you to help, you always come through. Will it be the cheapest in Toms River? Will it be the cheapest in Forked River? Let's find out.
