Gasoline prices in Rhode Island are up three cents this week, according to AAA Northeast.
AAA Northeast’s June 22 survey of prices in Rhode Island finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.06 per gallon. Rhode Island’s price is seven cents lower than the national price of $2.13. A year ago at this time, the average price in Rhode Island was 61 cents higher at $2.67 per gallon.
“Demand levels are likely to ebb and flow in the coming weeks as people continue to be cautious about travel,” said Lloyd Albert, Senior Vice President of AAA Public and Government Affairs. “As a result, pump prices will likely continue to increase, but at a slower rate through the end of the month.”
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 46 cents, from a low of $1.83 to a high of $2.29. AAA advises motorists to shop around for the best prices in their area. Please remember to slow down and move over for any emergency vehicles on the side of the road.
