Rhode Island gas prices remain unchanged from last week

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island gas prices are holding steady.

AAA Northeast said Monday that its weekly price survey found self-serve, regular selling for an average of $2.49 per gallon, the exact same as a week ago.

Rhode Island's price is 15 cents lower than the national average of $2.64, and 33 cents lower than the in-state price a year ago.

A AAA spokesman says motorists may see some price fluctuations through the end of the month due to ongoing refinery maintenance and tighter gasoline supply.

AAA found regular gas selling for a $2.35 per gallon to as high of $2.69.
