AAA reports increased gas prices, but doesn't foresee spike

Posted

Gasoline prices in Rhode Island are up three cents this week, according to AAA Northeast.

AAA Northeast’s June 15 survey of prices in Rhode Island finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.03 per gallon. Rhode Island’s price is seven cents lower than the national price of $2.10. A year ago at this time, the average price in Rhode Island was 69 cents higher at $2.72 per gallon.

“As Americans drive more, they are boosting gasoline demand, and that increased demand is generally lifting pump prices,” said Lloyd Albert, Senior Vice President of AAA Public and Government Affairs. “Higher demand will continue to push up gas prices in the coming weeks, but the numbers aren’t going to spike as high as they typically do in summer. That’s because demand won’t be sufficient enough to drive down stock levels, and we have a robust supply right now.”

The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 48 cents, from a low of $1.77 to a high of $2.25. AAA advises motorists to shop around for the best prices in their area. Please remember to slow down and move over for any emergency vehicles on the side of the road.
