Gas prices decline by 4 cents in R.I.

Jack Perry Journal Staff Writer jgregoryperry

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Gasoline prices in Rhode Island have dropped four cents in the past week, according to AAA Northeast.

The average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $2.529 at self-service pumps in the Ocean State, AAA says.

Rhode Island drivers are paying nine cents more than the national average of $2.439. A year ago, Rhode Island drivers were paying $2.249 per gallon. 

“More than 97 million Americans will be driving to this year’s holiday destinations, so lower prices here in the Northeast are a timely gift,” said Lloyd Albert, AAA Northeast senior vice president of public and government affairs. “Increased gasoline supplies, coupled with weaker winter demand, have helped pushed prices lower.”

AAA's survey found a 31-cent range in prices, from a low of $2.399 to a high of $2.709.

AAA found the following prices for other grades of gasoline or types of fuel: $2.779 for midgrade unleaded; $2.929 for premium unleaded and $2.829 for diesel.
