The price this week is 19 cents lower than it was a year ago, when it was $2.10 per gallon.
Gas in Rhode Island is still eight cents per gallon higher than the national average of $1.83.
The price of a gallon of gasoline in Massachusetts has also fallen another 3 cents in the past week, and is now down 22 cents in the past seven weeks.
AAA Northeast announced that self-serve, regular is selling for an average of $1.83 per gallon, a penny above the national average. That price is 24 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.
The lowest crude oil prices in 13 years, strong supplies and lesser demand in the winter are all contributing to the low prices.
