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.
