EDISON - Drivers in New Jersey are feeling the pain at the pump as gas prices continue to push higher.

The average retail price of a gallon of regular, full-service gasoline hit $3.09 a gallon in the Garden State. Meanwhile, the national average price rose to about $3.23.

"The uncertainty of the situation in the Middle East and its long-term affect on gas prices has many recalling the summer of 2008 when prices reached all-time highs above $4.00 a gallon," said Tracy Noble, spokesperson for AAA Mid-Atlantic in a news release yesterday. "It's too soon to project where gas prices are headed long-term, but many analysts believe we'll see $3.50 to $3.75 a gallon by early spring, and each additional 25-cent increase adds another $333 to annual gasoline expenditures."
