If you haven’t filled up your car in a while you’re in for sticker shock. AAA of Southern New England says gas shot up 12 cents a gallon last week. Much of it has to do with a variety of issues.
AAA’s weekly survey shows gas averaging $3.66 a gallon in Rhode Island, 12 cents higher than it was just a week ago. AAA spokesman John Paul says it was caused by recent increases in the price of crude oil spurred by refinery outages and other problems.
