PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The price of gasoline in Rhode Island is up three cents this week.

AAA Northeast said Tuesday in its weekly survey that self-serve regular is averaging $2.51 per gallon. That’s two cents above the national average.

AAA cited high travel volume over the holidays.

The average price of gasoline in Rhode Island is 20 cents higher than it was at this time last year.

AAA found gas selling for as low as $2.37 per gallon and as high as $2.71 in Rhode Island.

AAA says that although gasoline prices increased nationally over the holidays, motorists can expect to see lower prices this month as demand decreases.
