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.
