PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gas is up slightly in Rhode Island.

AAA Northeast says its weekly survey Monday found gas prices had risen one penny per gallon, to an average $2.24.

That’s four cents below the national average of $2.28 per gallon.

But it’s an increase of 27 percent from this time last year, when a gallon of gas cost 48 cents less, or $1.76.

AAA spokesman Lloyd Albert says the price of gas has dropped seven cents from the start of the year.
