Providence, R.I., February 1, 2021 — Rhode Island’s average gas price is up two cents from last week ($2.37), averaging $2.39 per gallon. Today’s price is 18 cents higher than a month ago ($2.21) and 14 cents cheaper than February 1, 2020 ($2.53). Rhode Island’s average gas price is 3 cents lower than the national average.
“For nearly a year, motorists have been saving, compared to the previous year, when filling up their gas tanks. While prices locally are still cheaper than this time in 2020, that extra pocket change is quickly going to dwindle thanks to rising crude oil prices that have made for more expensive pump prices,” said Lloyd Albert, Senior Vice President of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Northeast.
AAA Northeast’s February 1 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 2 cents higher than last week ($2.40), averaging $2.42 a gallon. Today’s national average price is 17 cents higher than a month ago ($2.25), and 5 cents cheaper than this day last year ($2.47).
