Rhode Island’s average gas price is the same as last week, averaging $3.07
per gallon. Monday’s price is 1 cent higher than a month ago, and 92 cents higher than September 14, 2020. Rhode Island’s average gas price is 10 cents lower than the national average.
“Timing is everything, and while supplies have tightened due to the slow recovery after Hurricane Ida, this is also the point when gas demand starts its seasonal decline,” said Lloyd Albert, Senior Vice President of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Northeast. “While there may be some price fluctuation, we expect most motorists to see stability at the pump.”
AAA Northeast’s September 13 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to 1 cent lower than last week, averaging $3.17
a gallon. Today’s national average price is 1 cent lower than a month ago, and 98 cents higher than this day last year.
