Providence, R.I., September 20, 2021 — Rhode Island’s average gas price is up 1 cent from last week ($3.07), averaging $3.08 per gallon. Today’s price is 2 cents higher than a month ago ($3.06), and 94 cents higher than September 20, 2020 ($2.14). Rhode Island’s average gas price is 11 cents lower than the national average.
“Hurricane Nicholas complicated and slowed the recovery from Ida, but the seasonal drop-off in demand helped mitigate price increases on the week,” said Lloyd Albert, Senior Vice President of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Northeast. “We aren’t in the clear yet, though. We are only at the mid-point for hurricane season, and it has been an active one so far, with 17 named storms already. Motorists can expect price fluctuations into October.”
AAA Northeast’s September 20 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to 2 cents higher than last week ($3.17), averaging $3.19 a gallon. Today’s national average price is 2 cents higher than a month ago ($3.17), and $1.01 higher than this day last year ($2.18).
