PROVIDENCE – Rhode Island’s gasoline prices rose 2 cents over the past week, the third consecutive week of increases, according to AAA Southern New England.

The cost of self-serve, unleaded regular averaged $3.90 per gallon – 2 cents more than last week and a gain of 9 cents over the last month – according to the trade group’s weekly survey of Rhode Island’s pump prices.

Prices ranged from $4.02 per gallon for midgrade unleaded to $4.15 for premium and $4.22 for diesel.

Even with the 2 cent increase, Rhode Island is 3 cents below the $3.93 national average for a gallon of self-pump regular unleaded. A year ago, gas in the Ocean State cost an average $3.62 for a gallon of regular unleaded.

The AAA Southern New England survey found a 26 cent range in the cost of unleaded regular in the Ocean State. Motorists could pay as low as $3.76 and as high as $4.02.

Gas prices in Massachusetts rose 3 cents over the last week to $3.80 per gallon for unleaded regular, the third consecutive week of increases.

Bay State motorists currently pay 13 cents below the national average for self-serve unleaded.

A year ago at this time, the Massachusetts average price for a gallon of gas was $3.57.
