Motorists continue to see sharply higher prices at the pumps in New York and New Jersey.

The average price of regular gasoline on Friday was $3.82, up 8 cents from last week, according to AAA Mid-Atlantic.

It also marks the fifth straight week prices have surged upward.

The current price is also much higher than the cost a year ago, when New Jersey motorists were paying $2.75.

Meanwhile, the national average price rose by 5 cents to $3.91. That's also much higher than the national average from a year ago, which was $2.88.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the surging pump prices are mostly due to rising crude oil prices, a weaker U.S. dollar and continued political unrest in the Middle East and North Africa.
