PROVIDENCE — Just two weeks after seeing gas prices spike eight cents per gallon, the largest single week rise of the summer season, prices are back on the decline.

The average price at the pump is down three cents this week in Rhode Island, according to AAA Northeast, and remains steady after the spike two weeks ago. The Monday survey of prices in Rhode Island found self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.33 per gallon, bringing the average price per gallon for Rhode Islanders back to the national average.

A year ago at this time, the average price in Rhode Island was eighteen cents lower at $2.15 per gallon. The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 25 cents, from a low of $2.21 to a high of $2.46.
