Gas prices fall 2 cents, to $2.86 a gallon in Rhode Island
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The price of a gallon of gasoline in Rhode Island is down this week.
AAA Northeast found in its weekly survey released Monday that the price of self-serve, regular is averaging $2.86 per gallon, which is two cents lower than last week.
That’s 3 cents higher than the national average and 52 cents per gallon higher than it was a year ago.
AAA found self-serve, regular gasoline selling for as low as $2.69 per gallon and as high as $3.09 in Rhode Island.
AAA says prices could rise slightly around Labor Day, but any increase would likely not last much past the holiday weekend.
