PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Gas prices in Rhode Island have dropped to their lowest level in more than six years.

AAA Northeast says this week’s average price for regular unleaded is $2.06 per gallon, five cents lower than last week and the lowest since spring 2009.

Rhode Island’s average price one year ago was $2.89.

The AAA says strong supply and dropping crude oil prices have contributed to the decline in prices.

The state’s current rate is five cents higher than the national average of $2.01.
