Drivers keeping track of prices at the pump may have noticed that the average gallon of regular unleaded will cost a nickel more than it did last week.
That extra nickel now puts the average price of regular unleaded at $3.79 a gallon. That’s higher than the national average. AAA Southern New England urges Rhode Islanders to shop around since the range in price spans 26-cents.
Across the border in Massachusetts the average price went up by four cents to $3.72 a gallon, just a penny shy of the national average of $3.73.
