NEW: RI Gas Prices Inching Closer to $4 Per Gallon

Monday, February 18, 2013

 

Slowly but surely, gas prices in Rhode Island are creeping closer to the dreaded $4 per gallon mark.

Prices at the pump rose for the third-straight week as, according to AAA Southern New England, the average price per gallon has risen five cents in the last seven days to an average of $3.799 for regular, unleaded.

With the increase, gas prices have now jumped 25 cents in past 21 days and are up 28 cents compared to where they were at this point last year.

And if that wasn’t bad enough, Rhode Island drivers are still paying above the national average per gallon, which is currently $3.73.

AAA found a range of 26 cents at the pump this week, from a low of $3.659 to a high of $3.919.

Midgrade gasoline also rose by five cents this week to an average of $3.959 while premium and diesel jumped a bit to $4.109 and 4.179 respectively.
