June 25–Gasoline prices in Rhode Island inched up another 2 cents over the last week, according to AAA Northeast.
The price of self-serve, regular unleaded gasoline is averaging $2.95 per gallon, 11 cents above the national average of $2.84, AAA said in its June 25 survey of prices in the state. A year ago at this time, the average price in Rhode Island was 68 cents lower, at $2.27 per gallon.
“An increase in crude oil production was announced at last week’s OPEC meeting, at least 600,000 barrels per day,” said Lloyd Albert, AAA Northeast senior vice president of Public and Government Affairs. “It is yet to be determined whether or not the increase in production will be enough to dramatically reduce gasoline prices. In the U.S., pump prices will not immediately be impacted.”
The range in prices for unleaded regular is 40 cents, from a low of $2.79 to a high of $3.19.
AAA also found these prices and ranges for other grades of self-serve gasoline in the state: $2.95 ($2.79-$3.19) for regular unleaded; $3.26 ($3.04-$3.49) for midgrade unleaded; $3.39 ($3.08-$3.59) for premium unleaded; and $3.20 ($3.05-$3.45) for diesel.
