RI and MA gas prices still relatively high
By LYDIA ROGERS
PROVIDENCE, RI – Gasoline prices are up in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts; although the prices are slightly better in Massachusetts.
Gas prices rose a penny in both states this week according to AAA Southern New England. Both Rhode Island and Massachusetts are higher than the national average for gasoline which is $3.78 per gallon for self-serve regular unleaded. If you fill-up in Rhode Island the average price is $3.96. Contrast that to $3.84 a gallon in the Bay State. Prices are up compared to last month in both states. AAA reports that prices can range among gas stations as much as 35 cents a gallon in Rhode Island and 47 cents in Massachusetts.
