PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — AAA said Monday that gas prices in Rhode Island went down 1 cent compared to last week.

The average price per gallon this week is $3.84, lower than last week’s $3.85. This week’s prices compared to last month’s is 32 cents higher, and 43 cents more than last year’s.

“The national average for a gallon of gasoline slid three cents in the past week to $3.77, and prices locally have been stable recently,” Diana Gugliotta, director of Public Affairs for AAA Northeast, said. “The main reason is the global cost for oil, gasoline’s main ingredient, has been stuck in a narrow price range of $85 to $92 a barrel for several weeks.”

According to AAA Northeast, the current average price for a gallon of gas in Massachusetts is $3.85, while Connecticut drivers are seeing a price of $3.77.
