The rising price of crude oil is forcing New Jersey drivers to pay more for gas. According to AAA, the average price for regular gas in the state is now $3.89 per gallon, an increase of 26 cents in the last week and more than a dollar higher than this time last year. Industry advocates believe reversing a decades-old ban on drivers pumping their own gas could lower costs.
