Gas prices stay the same in Rhode Island

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — The average gas price in Rhode Island on Tuesday was as it was last week, according to AAA.

Gas costs an average of $4.71 in the Ocean State, which is 54 cents higher than it was a month ago.

“So far, the pent-up urge to travel caused by the pandemic outweighs high pump prices for many consumers,” said Lloyd Albert, senior vice president of public and government Affairs for AAA Northeast.

AAA said that there is a chance that gas prices may continue to rise over the summer as drivers continue to travel.
