Gas prices in Rhode Island climb 2 cents

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- Gasoline prices in Rhode Island have climbed 2 cents in the past week and a nickel over the past month.

AAA Southern New England said Monday the latest gas survey shows the average cost of a gallon of regular, self-serve in Rhode Island is $3.57, up from $3.55.

Even with the increase, the local price is still eight cents below the national per-gallon average of $3.65.

A year ago at this time Rhode Islanders were paying a lot more: an average of $3.81 gallon.
