Providence, R.I., December 27, 2021 — Rhode Island’s average gas price is two cents lower than last week ($3.39), averaging $3.37 per gallon. Today’s price is 5 cents lower than a month ago ($3.42), and $1.17 higher than December 27, 2020 ($2.20). Rhode Island’s average gas price is 9 cents higher than the national average.
“Gasoline prices fluctuated over the past few days as fears of an omicron-driven economic slowdown were countered by news of a severe fire at a major oil refinery in Texas,” said Lloyd Albert, Senior Vice President of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Northeast. As a result, the recent steady decline in pump prices has slowed, with the national average for a gallon of gas falling two cents on the week to $3.28.
AAA Northeast’s December 27 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 2 cents lower than last week ($3.30), averaging $3.28 a gallon. Today’s national average price is 11 cents lower than a month ago ($3.39), and $1.03 higher than this day last year ($2.25).
