PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Gas prices have fallen slightly in Rhode Island, down a penny from last week to an average $2.20 per gallon for regular unleaded.

AAA Northeast says its weekly survey released Monday found the price in Rhode Island is seven cents above the national average of $2.13.

A year ago at this time, the price of gas in Rhode Island was $2.67 per gallon on average, 47 cents more. That’s 21 percent more than today.

Lloyd Albert, senior vice president of public and government affairs for AAA Northeast, says the combination of falling oil prices and strong supplies is providing savings at the pump.
