PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) – The average price of a gallon of gas in Rhode Island has dropped below $2.

AAA Northeast reported Monday that with the price down 6 cents, a gallon of self-serve, regular is now selling for an average of $1.95.

That’s still 18 cents higher than the national average of $1.77, but 88 cents lower than the Rhode Island price a year ago.

AAA predicts the plummeting prices will continue.

There was a wide range of prices in Rhode Island, from a low of $1.29 to a high of $2.23 for a gallon of regular.
