PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Gas prices in Rhode Island are rising again, for the sixth week in a row.

AAA Northeast says its weekly survey on Monday found a gallon of regular unleaded gas had risen to an average of $2.35, up 4 cents per gallon from last week. It’s 17 cents higher than it was the week of Thanksgiving.

The price of gas in Rhode island is still 2 cents lower than the national average price of $2.37 gallon.

But it’s 18 percent higher than at this time last year, when gas was averaging $1.99 per gallon, 36 cents less than this week.
