Providence, R.I., November 16, 2020 — Rhode Island’s average gas price is the same as last week, averaging $2.08 per gallon. Today’s price is 5 cents lower than a month ago ($2.13) and 42 cents cheaper than November 16, 2019 ($2.50). Rhode Island’s average gas price is 4 cents lower than the national average.
“Following a jump in demand, we’ve seen a number of state gas price averages increase on the week. However, the majority of these increases were just a few pennies,” said Lloyd Albert, AAA Northeast Senior Vice President of Public and Government Affairs. “With many states seeing rising COVID-19 case numbers and a number of officials warning against holiday travel, demand is likely to see a dip in coming weeks.”
AAA Northeast’s November 16 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 1 cent higher than last week ($2.11), averaging $2.12 a gallon. Today’s national average price is 5 cents lower than a month ago ($2.17), and 48 cents cheaper than this day last year ($2.60).
