AAA Northeast’s February 27 survey of prices in Rhode Island finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.21 per gallon. Rhode Island’s price is eight cents below the national average of $2.29. A year ago at this time, the average price in Rhode Island was 47 cents lower at $1.74.
“Lower driving demand at this time of year and an oversupplied market as a result of increased U.S. gasoline production has kept prices stable despite OPEC oil production cuts,” said Lloyd Albert, Senior Vice President of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Northeast.
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 21 cents, from a low of $2.09 to a high of $2.30. AAA advises motorists to shop around for the best prices in their area, and to make sure they and their passengers buckle up — every time.
