PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Gas prices in Rhode Island have fallen slightly, just in time for Thanksgiving travel.
AAA Northeast in its weekly survey Monday found the price of self-serve, regular gas had fallen 3 cents per gallon from last week, to an average of $2.18.
That’s still 4 cents higher than the national average of $2.14 per gallon.
It’s also 5 cents higher than a year ago, when gas was averaging $2.13 cents per gallon in Rhode Island.
AAA spokesman Lloyd Albert says almost 9 of every 10 Thanksgiving travellers plan to go by car.
