"We expect prices to continue dropping for the remainder of year if current trends hold, falling close to $2 per gallon for regular before year's end," auto club spokesman David Weinstein said. "Prices have dropped steadily for a month and are down at least a quarter in that time in most New Jersey locales."
Meanwhile, Garden State prices remain the lowest in the region.
AAA says Pennsylvania drivers are paying $2.45 a gallon on average, New Yorkers $2.69 and drivers in Delaware $2.33.
The national average Friday was $2.47, down 10 cents since last month.
