Gas prices take 3 cent jump

Posted

Rhode Island’s average gas price is up three cents from last week, averaging $2.80 per gallon. Monday’s price is 2 cents higher than a month ago and 87 cents higher than April 26, 2020. Rhode Island’s average gas price is 8 cents lower than the national average.

 “Both demand and supply have steadily increased over the last several weeks,” said Lloyd Albert, Senior Vice President of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Northeast. “The jump in demand combined with a small increase in supply pushed the national gas price average two cents more expensive on the week to $2.88. This is the largest one-week national jump we’ve seen in five weeks.” 

AAA Northeast’s April 26 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 1 cent higher than last week, averaging $2.88

a gallon. The national average price is 2 cents higher than a month ago, and $1.11 higher than this day last year.

AAA, gas
