PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Gasoline prices in Rhode Island have inched up another 2 cents per gallon.
AAA Northeast said Monday that even though self-serve, regular is up to an average of $2.28 per gallon, it remains 4 cents per gallon lower than the national average.
A year ago, the average price in Rhode Island was 8 cents lower at $2.20 per gallon.
AAA found regular gasoline as low as $2.13 per gallon and as high as $2.43.
AAA says higher crude oil prices have joined with strong demand to push prices higher at the pump.
