Survey finds gas prices unchanged from last week

Posted

Rhode Island's average gas price is unchanged from last week, averaging $2.96 per gallon. Monday’s price is 4 cents higher than a month ago and 92 cents higher than June 14, 2020. Rhode Island's average gas price is 12 cents lower than the national average.

"Motorists are paying, on average, 37% more to fill up than the start of the year," said Lloyd Albert, Senior Vice President of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Northeast. "Prices for the rest of the month are likely to push more expensive, but if crude production increases, as forecasted, there is the possibility of seeing some relief at the pump later this summer."

AAA Northeast's June 14 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 3 cents higher than last week, averaging $3.08 a gallon. Today's national average price is 5 cents higher than a month ago, and 98 cents higher than this day last year.

AAA, gas
