PROVIDENCE – The average price of self-serve, regular unleaded gasoline in Rhode Island stayed the same as last week at $3.37 per gallon, 9 cents above the national average of $3.28 per gallon, AAA Northeast said on Monday.

One year ago, regular gas prices in the Ocean State averaged $2.22 per gallon.

“Prices have been trending downward, which is good news for motorists,” Lloyd Albert, senior vice president of public and government affairs for AAA Northeast, said in a statement. “Factors such as the continuing impact of COVID and the willingness of OPEC nations to increase oil production will play a role in what prices we see at the pumps throughout the first quarter of the year.

Midgrade gas in Rhode Island averaged $3.72 per gallon Monday.
