Rhode Island’s average gas price has increased 6 cents from last week, now averaging $3.54 per gallon. This price is 19 cents higher than a month ago ($3.35) and 99 cents higher than February 21, 2021 ($2.55). Rhode Island’s average gas price is 1 cent higher than the national average.
“Continuing tensions between Russia and Ukraine, plus increased demand as more drivers take to the roads, are combining to keep oil prices high, which translates into pain at the pump,” said Lloyd Albert, Senior Vice President of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Northeast.
AAA Northeast’s February 21 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 5 cents higher than last week ($3.48), averaging $3.53 a gallon. Today’s national average price is 21 cents higher a month ago ($3.32), and 90 cents higher than this day last year ($2.63).
