Gas prices in Rhode Island are unchanged from last week, staying at an average $2.13 per gallon for regular unleaded.
AAA Northeast says its weekly survey released Monday found the average price in Rhode Island is one cent higher than the national average of $2.12 per gallon.
Lloyd Albert, AAA Northeast Senior Vice President of Public and Government Affairs, says mid-summer gas prices have not been this low since 2004.
A year ago at this time, gas cost $2.55 per gallon in Rhode Island. That's 42 cents per gallon more or around 20 percent higher than the price now.
