NEW: Gas Prices Dropping in RI

Monday, January 21, 2013

 

For the first time this year, gas prices in Rhode Island have dropped.

Two weeks after the state saw its first weekly increase in gas prices in three months, AAA Southern New England reported today that prices are down two cents over the last seven days.

AAA’s January 21st survey of prices in the Ocean State found an average price of $3.519 per gallon for self-serve, regular unleaded, roughly the same price they were a month ago.

Rhode Island drivers are still paying more than they would in many other states, however, as the national average price per gallon is $3.30, a 21-cent difference. A year ago, the price in RI was an average of $3.50.

AAA found a price range of 36 cents this week, from a low of $3.399 to a high of $3.759.

Midgrade prices, meanwhile, were an average of $3.739 in the state, down five cents from last week, while premium and diesel prices stood at $3.889 and $4.079, respectively.
