PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Gas prices have fallen in Rhode Island for the sixth consecutive week.

AAA Northeast found in its weekly survey Monday that the average price of a gallon of regular fell 4 cents from last week, to an average of $2.55 per gallon.

The price in mid-August hasn’t been this low since 2004.

The price is 18 cents lower than a month ago and 12 cents less than the national average of $2.67 per gallon.

A year ago, gas cost $3.54 per gallon on average in Rhode Island, 99 cents more than the current price.

AAA found that self-serve, regular is now selling for as low as $2.33 per gallon and as high as $2.73.

AAA says a global crude oil oversupply is leading to lower pump prices.
