That’s up two cents from how much a gallon of gas cost Rhode Island drivers last month. And it’s almost a dime more than drivers in Massachusetts are paying.

Bay State drivers are paying an average $3.50 a gallon for regular unleaded. That’s up a penny from last week.

AAA urges drivers in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts to shop around, since the range in gas prices is anywhere $0.26 to $0.32 a gallon.
