PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Gas prices are down in Rhode Island.

AAA Northeast says its weekly survey Monday found the price of a gallon of regular has fallen three cents, to an average $2.21.

That’s eight cents lower than the national average of $2.29 per gallon.

But it’s 27 percent higher than at this time last year, when gas was averaging $1.74 per gallon in Rhode Island, or 47 cents lower.

AAA’s Lloyd Albert says prices have been stable amid lower driving demand during the winter months, and an oversupplied market.
