PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Gas prices are continuing to rise in Rhode Island, but they’re still much lower than they were last year.

AAA Northeast finds in its weekly survey released Monday that the price of a gallon of regular rose 1 cent from last week, to an average of $2.65.

That price is 18 cents higher than a month ago, but 6 cents less than the national average of $2.71 per gallon.

Gas in Rhode Island still costs much less than it did a year ago at this time, when it cost $1.04 more per gallon. At that time, a gallon of regular was averaging $3.69.

AAA found that self-serve, regular gas is now selling for as low as $2.49 per gallon and as high as $2.89 in Rhode Island.
