The price of a regular gallon of gas went down 1 cent on New Jersey toll roads Friday morning.

A gallon of gas on the New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway will now cost you $3.45 instead of $3.46.

It's the fifth straight week gas prices have fallen in the Garden State, with the cost down 13 cents from start of the month.

The highways offer some of the cheapest gas in the area, and motorists are taking note.

"I live on Staten Island, but I try to fill up in Jersey every chance I get," driver Tony Ablavskiy said.

Gas prices only increase once a week on the two highways, maintained by the New Jersey Turnpike Authority. The Authority surveys 100 gas stations, located off the highway, every Wednesday and Thursday to determine an average statewide price, and implements the increases Friday morning. The service area per-gallon cost cannot be more than 3 cents above that average price.
