PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Gas prices in Rhode Island are up another 7 cents per gallon and nearing $2 per gallon for the first time since early January.

AAA Northeast found in its weekly survey Monday that the average price of a gallon of self-serve, regular was $1.99.

The price rose 25 cents in the past month.

AAA found self-serve, regular selling for as low as $1.87 and as high as $2.07 per gallon.

The Rhode Island price is still below the national average of $2.04 per gallon.

Last year at this time, the price of gas was 37 cents higher, at $2.36 per gallon.

AAA says a rebound in oil prices, seasonal increases in fuel demand and refinery slowdowns sparked an increase.
