MARLBORO - Will cheaper gas be enough to get many more Americans on the road this summer?Many around the Garden State told News 12 New Jersey that they're still too worried about their jobs and the economy.

Pain at the pump continued to ease this week as prices kept trending downward. The average price for a gallon of regular gas is currently $3.63.

Economists and tourism experts are expecting only a small uptick in summer travelers. The job market is improving, but still shaky. And household debt remains high.
