It's costing New Jersey motorists more at the gasoline pump, but not as much as motorists in neighboring states. AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of regular hit $2 in New Jersey Thursday. That's up from $1.87 a month ago but lower than $3.49 in 2008.

The last time gasoline cost $2 in the Garden State was Nov. 18, 2008.

The auto club says $1.47 per gallon on Jan. 2 was the lowest price in the Garden State this year.

AAA says the average price of regular costs $2.27 in New York, $2.26 in Connecticut and $2.14 in Pennsylvania.

AAA spokeswoman Tracy Noble says most indications point to gas prices remaining fairly close to where they are into the summer.
