PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island — Rhode Island gas prices have climbed another 5 cents per gallon in the past week.

A weekly survey by AAA Northeast released Monday finds that the average price of a gallon of regular was up to $2.29.

Rhode Island prices are 19 cents higher per gallon than a month ago and $1.23 lower than on the same date a year ago.

The current price is a penny less than the national average.

AAA says self-serve, regular is selling for as low as $2.12 and as high as $2.43 per gallon.

Earlier this month Rhode Island gas prices jumped 11 cents per gallon, driven by higher crude oil prices.
