PROVIDENCE – The cost of self-serve, regular unleaded gasoline in Rhode Island fell by 1 cent this week to an average of $2.24 per gallon, according to AAA Northeast. Across the state, the cost of gas now ranges 31 cents, from $2.10 to a high of $2.41.

Gas prices in Rhode Island are now 3 cents lower than the national average of $2.27 per gallon and 1 cent lower than they were a year ago, something Lloyd Albert, senior vice president of public and government affairs for AAA Northeast said is a boon for summer motorists.

“Gas prices locally are still some of the lowest we’ve seen all year,” Albert said. “Consumers have a great opportunity to take advantage of low prices as they head out onto the heart of the summer driving vacation season.”

The price of gas in Massachusetts similarly fell 1 cent this week, dropping to an average of $2.18 per gallon. Gas prices in the state are now 9 cents below the national average and 2 cents higher than a year ago.  Prices in the Bay state range 36 cents, from a low of $2.06 to a high of $2.42.
