Gas Prices Down 13 Cents To $3.59 Per Gallon In NJ

Gas prices in New Jersey took a nosedive thirteen cent decrease for a gallon of regular.

It is normal for the prices along the New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway to either go up or down, but drivers this morning were happy to see the large decrease in cost.

Experts say that many gas stations see a decrease in price this time of year because they switch from a more expensive summer gas fuel to a less expensive winter fuel. That, combined with oil barrels costing less is saving you a few extra bucks when filling up.

However, the prices this time last year were actually 25 cents cheaper. So, you are still paying more at the pump than previous years.
