Gas prices up an average of 2 cents in Rhode Island
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Drivers in Rhode Island are paying a little more at the pump than they were a week ago.
AAA Northeast said Monday that its latest weekly survey of gas prices found self-serve regular selling for an average of $2.89 per gallon in Rhode Island, up 2 cents from the previous week.
The current U.S. average is 4 cents lower at $2.85 per gallon.
AAA says demand for gasoline rose around the country over the past week while supplies dropped. She says prices at the pump are likely to remain volatile if there is any further tightening of gasoline and crude oil inventories.
