Gas prices in Rhode Island up 6 cents

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — Gas prices in Rhode Island have increased once again.

On Monday, AAA Northeast said that the price for a gallon of gas is up 6 cents from last week, averaging $3.54.

“Despite concerns about the economy and declining demand for gasoline, gas prices increased again last week as markets continue to reckon with recently-announced production cuts from OPEC+ nations and the prospect of a colder-than-normal winter in the Northeast,” said Diana Gugliotta, director of public affairs for AAA¬†Northeast.

Rhode Island’s average gas price is 34 cents lower than the national average.

According to AAA Northeast, the current average price for a gallon of gas in Massachusetts is $3.60, while Connecticut drivers are seeing a price of $3.48.
