After Steady Climb, Gas Prices Dip Slightly in RI & MA

Drivers in Rhode Island and Massachusetts will find gas prices a bit lower. The slight dip comes after a steady climb for the last month at the pumps.

A gallon for regular unleaded is down three cents this week, according to the latest survey from AAA Southern New England.

The average gallon in Rhode Island is at $3.77, that’s much higher than the national average. And it’s almost a dime more than drivers in Massachusetts are paying. Bay State drivers are paying an average $3.69 a gallon for regular unleaded. That’s down two cents from last week.

AAA urges drivers in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts to shop around, since the range in gas prices is more than a quarter.
