PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island gas prices have climbed another 8 cents per gallon in the past week.

A weekly survey by AAA Northeast released Monday finds that the average price of a gallon of regular was up to $2.37.

Rhode Island prices are 29 cents higher per gallon than a month ago and $1.18 lower than on the same date a year ago.

The current price is 6 cents less than the national average.

AAA says self-serve, regular is selling for as low as $2.27 and as high as $2.49 per gallon.

AAA says prices are rising due to seasonal maintenance at refineries and volatile global crude oil prices, and will likely continue to rise this spring.
