RI gas prices jump 11 cents, to $2.15 a gallon

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Gas prices in Rhode Island have jumped again, up 11 cents per gallon in a week.

AAA Northeast said Monday its weekly survey found the average price of a gallon of regular had climbed to $2.15.

The Rhode Island price is now above the national average of $2.11.

The price of gas in Rhode Island last year at this time was $2.47 per gallon, or 32 cents higher.

AAA says high fuel demand, declining refinery production and rising oil costs have pushed prices higher.
