Rhode Island gas prices up 2 cents

The price of gasoline in Rhode Island has increased by two cents, marking the fourth straight week of higher prices at the pump.

AAA Southern New England said Monday that a gallon of regular unleaded is $3.50, up from $3.48 last week.

That's 15 cents above prices at the beginning of the year and 12 cents above the national average of $3.38.

Rhode Islanders paid an average of $3.19 a gallon this week a year ago.
