PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Gas prices have dropped in Rhode Island for the second week in a row, to an average of $2.73 for a gallon of regular unleaded.

AAA Northeast finds in its weekly survey released Monday that the price of a gallon of regular dropped 2 cents from last week.

That price is 7 cents lower than a month ago and 3 cents lower than the national average of $2.76 per gallon.

Gas in Rhode Island still costs much less than it did a year ago at this time, when it cost 95 cents more per gallon. At that time, a gallon of regular was averaging $3.68.

AAA found that self-serve, regular gas is now selling for as low as $2.59 per gallon and as high as $2.89 in Rhode Island.
