PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- Gas prices in Rhode Island have dropped by nine cents a gallon.

Monday's price survey from AAA Southern New England finds that a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline is averaging $3.52, down from $3.61 last week.

The local price is one penny higher than the national average, and is 22 cents less than the price in Rhode Island last month.

A year ago at this time Rhode Islanders were paying an average of $3.96 a gallon.
