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

AAA Northeast said Monday in its weekly survey that self-serve regular is averaging $2.54 per gallon. That’s the same as the national average.

The average price of gasoline in Rhode Island is 26 cents higher than it was at this time last year, when it sold for $2.28 per gallon.

AAA found gas selling for as low as $2.43 per gallon and as high as $2.70 in Rhode Island.

AAA says the increase is due to the price of crude oil.
