NEW: Gas Prices Back on the Rise in RI

Monday, January 28, 2013

 

So much for good news at the pump.

One week after gas prices saw their first drop of the new year in Rhode Island, drivers are once again seeing an increase at the pump as AAA Southern New England reports the state’s average price per gallon jumped three cents in the last week.

AAA’s January 28th survey of prices in Rhode Island found an average price of $3.549 per gallon for self-serve, regular unleaded.

Rhode Island drivers are not only paying three cents more per gallon now than they were a month ago but they are also paying over 20 cents more than the national average, which currently stands at $3.349.

The only bit of positive news for Ocean State drivers is that prices are still three cents lower than they were a year ago when the average price per gallon was $3.57.

AAA found a price range of 30 cents in the state this week, from a low of $3.459 to a high of $3.759.

Midgrade prices, meanwhile, were an average of $3.759 in the state, up two cents from last week, while premium and diesel prices stood at $3.919 and $4.079, respectively.
