TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Gas prices remained stable in New Jersey and around the nation last week, and analysts say they could drop a bit in coming days.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas in New Jersey on Friday was $2.78, a penny lower than last week and substantially below the average $2.90 at this time last year.

The national average gas price Friday was $2.72 a gallon, down two cents from last week and well below the average of $2.87 at this time last year.

Analysts say drivers could see prices decrease in coming days following an 8 percent drop in crude oil prices late last week.
