Providence, R.I., April 19, 2021 — Rhode Island’s average gas price is the same as last week, averaging $2.77 per gallon. Today’s price is 2 cents lower than a month ago ($2.79) and 80 cents higher than April 19, 2020 ($1.97). Rhode Island’s average gas price is 10 cents lower than the national average.
“Refinery utilization is nearly back to pre-pandemic levels, and with gasoline supplies increasing in the last month amid lower crude oil prices, motorists have benefited from mostly flat gas prices,” said Lloyd Albert, Senior Vice President of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Northeast. “However, crude started to see some upward movement this week, which could translate to small increases at the pump by the end of April.”
AAA Northeast’s April 19 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 1 cent higher than last week ($2.86), averaging $2.87 a gallon. Today’s national average price is 1 cent lower than a month ago ($2.88), and $1.06 higher than this day last year ($1.81).
