N.J. gas jumps 17 cents per gallon over past month

A combination of the annual transition from winter to summer formula gas, unrest in the Middle East, and refinery maintenance and increasing demand is once again sending New Jersey gas prices into higher territory.

On Tuesday, the average gallon of regular gas in the Garden State reached $3.394, more than 17 cents more expensive than the $3.222 average of one month ago.

Surges in gas prices are also having a negative impact on inflation, sending prices higher due to increased energy and transportation costs.

Gas prices are up 50% relative to where they were when Joe Biden ascended to the presidency.
