Providence, R.I., September 14, 2020 — Rhode Island’s average gas price is down two cents from last week ($2.17), averaging $2.15 per gallon. Today’s price is 1 cent higher than a month ago ($2.14) and 37 cents cheaper than September 14, 2019 ($2.52). Rhode Island’s average gas price is 4 cents lower than the national average.
“Typically lower supply levels translate into higher pump prices. However, even with consistent declines in gasoline supplies, that’s just not the case right now,”,” said Lloyd Albert, AAA Northeast Senior Vice President of Public and Government Affairs. “Despite the steady supply dip, continued low levels of demand helped push gas prices cheaper on the week.
“Motorists will see some cost savings at the pump with the switchover to winter-blend, but the price difference will be less than other years given how cheap prices have been this year already,” added Mr. Albert. “However, hurricanes can always change any forecast for savings.”
AAA Northeast’s September 14 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 3 cents higher than last week ($2.22), averaging $2.19 a gallon. Today’s national average price 2 cents higher than a month ago ($2.17), and 37 cents cheaper than this day last year ($2.56).
