Providence, R.I., July 6, 2021 — Rhode Island’s average gas price is up 1 cent from last week ($3.00), averaging $3.01 per gallon. Today’s price is 5 cents higher than a month ago ($2.96) and 91 cents higher than July 6, 2020 ($2.10). Rhode Island’s average gas price is 12 cents lower than the national average.
“Higher crude oil prices and robust demand for gasoline—reinforced by record road travel during the July Fourth weekend—are pushing pump prices higher,” said Lloyd Albert, Senior Vice President of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Northeast. “We had hoped that global crude production increases would bring some relief at the pump this month, but weekend OPEC negotiations fell through with no agreement reached, and now crude prices are poised to surge to a seven-year high.”
AAA Northeast’s July 6 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 3 cents higher than last week ($3.10), averaging $3.13 a gallon. Today’s national average price is 8 cents higher than a month ago ($3.05), and 95 cents higher than this day last year ($2.18).
