Survey finds gas prices averaging $3.06 per gallon

Posted

Rhode Island’s average gas price is up 1 cent from last week, averaging $3.06 per gallon. Tuesday’s price is 3 cents higher than a month ago and 92 cents higher than August 10, 2020. Rhode Island’s average gas price is 12 cents lower than the national average.

 “We continue to see very robust gasoline demand for the peak summer driving season,” said Diana Gugliotta, Senior Manager of Public Affairs for AAA Northeast. “The latest demand rate was 2% higher than the same time period in 2019, while gasoline stocks are about 1% below.”

 AAA Northeast’s August 10 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be the same as last week, averaging $3.18

a gallon. Today’s national average price is 4 cents higher than a month ago, and $1.01 higher than this day last year.
