PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Gas prices have risen 2 cents per gallon in Rhode Island.

AAA Northeast says its weekly survey on Monday found the price of a gallon of regular unleaded climbed to $2.22.

That’s 1 cent above the national average of $2.21 per gallon.

It’s 16 cents higher than last year at this time, when gas in Rhode Island was averaging $2.06 per gallon.

AAA Northeast says the price increase is partly due to the possibility of production cuts next month by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, or OPEC.
