RI gas prices up again, but just by 1 cent

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) – Gas prices in Rhode Island have climbed a penny, the first increase in more than a month.

AAA Southern New England said Monday the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in the Ocean State is $3.55.

That's up a penny from last week and marks the first increase since Sept. 12.

The national average is nine cents more, or $3.46 a gallon.

A year ago, the price of regular unleaded in Rhode Island was $2.84.
