PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island gas prices are up 2 cents to the highest average ahead of the Fourth of July holiday in six years.

The weekly price survey by AAA Southern New England released Monday found that the average cost of a gallon of self-serve regular in the state is $3.75.

The price in Rhode Island is 5 cents more than a month ago. It’s also 7 cents more than the national per-gallon average of $3.68.

Rhode Islanders were paying 19 cents less on average, or $3.56 a gallon, a year ago this week.

AAA found a 24-cent range in prices, from a low of $3.65 to a high of $3.89.
