Rhode Island gas prices increase 1 cent per gallon, remain lower than national average


PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island — The price of gas in Rhode Island has increased, but remains lower than the national average.

AAA Northeast finds in its weekly survey released Tuesday that the price of a gallon of regular unleaded increased one cent from last week to an average of $2.21.

That price is still 9 cents lower than a month ago and 10 cents less than the national average of $2.31 per gallon.

Gas in Rhode Island costs much less than it did a year ago at this time, when it cost $1.07 more per gallon. At that time, a gallon of regular was averaging $3.28.

AAA found that self-serve, regular gas is now selling for as low as $2.07 per gallon and as high as $2.38.
