South Jersey is making news this morning because the average gas price didn't go up overnight. It didn't go down, either, but held steady at $3.67 a gallon for regular no lead, AAA Mid-Atlantic said today.
Across the river, the five-county Philadelphia region saw the average price go up a cent, to $3.85 a gallon.
At the national level, the average also was up a cent, to $3.81.
Diesel, which has been rising along with gas prices, also continued to move up overnight.
South Jersey's diesel average was up 2 cents to $4.51; the Philadelphia region's was up 2 cents to $4.80.
The U.S. average for diesel was $4.56, also up 2 cents.
Oil rose above $130 a barrel for the first time after at least five banks raised price forecasts in the last week on expectations that supply constraints will persist, Bloomberg News reported.
