PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island drivers are paying a little more at the pump this week.

AAA Northeast reported Monday that the average price of self-serve, regular gasoline jumped 3 cents to an average of $2.19 per gallon.

That price is 3 cents per gallon lower than the national average and a penny lower than the Rhode Island price a year ago.

AAA found self-serve, regular selling for as low as $2.03 per gallon and as high as $2.39.

AAA says a preliminary decision by OPEC nations to limit production may have an impact on oil prices.
