Gas prices in Rhode Island down 2 cents this week

Gas prices in Rhode Island down 2 cents this week

The price of gas in MA continues to fall after its post-hurricane spike last month.

"They're always changing so there's really no difference I mean we all have to drive plus I use premium so I'm always stuck with the high price anyway", Rick James of Chicopee told 22News.

The average in the state of Nevada dropped 2.9 cents per gallon to $2.78. It's 12 cents per gallon less than last month, and 15.2 cents per gallon higher than a year ago.

The highest prices in the county were in the Boca Raton-Delray Beach area, including $2.99 at two Valeros - one at Jog and Clint Moore roads and another on US 1 north of Glades Road.

The price of gas in Rhode Island is down two cents this week and continues to fall from its post-hurricane spike last month.

AAA's Mary Maguire says that despite the recent declines, drivers are paying some 35 cents more for gas than they did at the same time a year ago. "While recent actions from OPEC may cause oil prices to hold above the key $50 per barrel level, there is no threat of a quick return to the $3 per gallon days".

Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy, believes the national average might continue to decline for the next few weeks.

Still, the current per-gallon average is 5 to 10 cents higher than it should be in the current market, Jenkins said, adding, "Motorists should expect another round of discounts at the pump this week".

Gas inventories are continuing to increase after Hurricane Harvey.
