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.
The National Weather Service predicts Rhode Island will get another one to two inches of snow Friday. This is much less than the eight to ten inches which had been initially projected for Thursday and Friday.
Gas prices continue their upward spiral in Rhode Island. The cost per gallon rose three cents this week, according to AAA of southern New England. Prices are now 28 cents higher per gallon than a month ago.
Cab stand workers at Boston’s Logan Airport are accused of corruption. Five men are being arraigned Wednesday on charges of taking bribes.
Cabs operating legally at Logan report to a taxi pool where they are dispatched to terminal cab stands in order. Prosecutors claim the cab stand workers collected between $20 and $40 from any cab driver who wanted to cut in line. Longer-distance fares would also be steered to some of the cabbies.
Some of the drivers told investigators this system nearly doubled their daily earnings.
