Gas prices in Rhode Island have fallen another nickel, marking the fifth consecutive week of decline ahead of the Christmas holiday.

AAA Southern New England said on Monday that the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gas is $3.33, down from $3.38 a week earlier.

The price remains 11 cents above the national average of $3.22 per gallon.

Last year at this time, the average gas price in Rhode Island was $3.10.
