Average gas price spikes 8 cents, AAA survey finds

Posted

Rhode Island’s average gas price is up eight cents from last week, averaging $2.34 per gallon. Monday’s price is 19 cents higher than a month ago and 24 cents cheaper than January 18, 2020. Rhode Island’s average gas price is 4 cents lower than the national average. 

“These rising prices were expected as supply tightens and crude oil gets more expensive,” said Lloyd Albert, Senior Vice President of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Northeast. 

 AAA Northeast’s January 18 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 7 cents higher than last week averaging $2.38

a gallon. Today’s national average price is 17 cents higher than a month ago and 17 cents cheaper than this day last year.
