PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Gas prices this week have increased across the nation, including in Rhode Island.

AAA Northeast says its weekly survey released Monday found the average price of a gallon of self-serve, regular gas increased 8 cents from last week, up to $1.85.

Rhode Island’s price is 9 cents lower the national average and 59 cents lower than the in-state price this time last year.

AAA found self-serve, regular selling in Rhode Island for as low as $1.73 and as high as $2.09 per gallon.

Prices last week increased for the first time since November.

AAA says a rebound in oil prices and refinery slowdowns have sparked an increase.
