Gas Prices in NJ Drop Below $5. Will It Last?

Gas prices across the Garden State have been incrementally dropping over the past little while – shortly after the average price for a gallon of fuel soared above $5 a gallon.

As of Monday morning, AAA said the average price for gas in New Jersey stood at $4.99, down 6 cents from the record high of $5.05 a gallon set on June 13.

While this is welcome news, it begs the question: will the reprieve last?

Unfortunately, most analysts say no. Demand for gas dropped slightly after the price rose over $5 nationally, causing this current minor decline. However, demand has been picking up again, which will lead to yet higher prices, industry analysts say.
