PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) – According to AAA Northeast, gasoline prices in Rhode Island are down nine cents this week.

Rhode Island’s average price for self-serve, regular unleaded is averaging $2.08 per gallon according to AAA Northeast’s April 6 survey.

The price of gas in RI is sixteen cents higher than the national average at $1.92 per gallon.

“This week, market analysts are watching crude oil prices, which started to increase at the end of last week,” said Lloyd Albert, Senior Vice President of AAA Public and Government Affairs. “However, given the low demand, increases in crude aren’t likely to have an impact on gas prices in the near-term.”

From the latest AAA survey, unleaded regular is 72 cents, from a low of $1.67 to a high of $2.39.

Today’s local gas prices and their ranges are as follows:

Self Serve                                           Grade                        

$2.08 ($1.67-$2.39)                            Regular Unleaded

$2.59 ($2.29-$2.97)                            Midgrade Unleaded

$2.74 ($2.49-$3.15)                            Premium Unleaded

$2.80 ($2.34-$2.99)                            Diesel
