Average cost of gas in Rhode Island down another 4 cents; still 12 cents above US average

Gas prices in Rhode Island have fallen another 4 cents, but they're still a lot higher than the national average.

AAA Southern New England says Monday the latest weekly price survey shows the average cost of a gallon of self-serve regular in the state is $3.64. That's down 11 cents from a month ago.

Still, the current local price is 12 cents more than the national per-gallon average of $3.52.

Rhode Islanders were paying an average of $3.80, or 16 cents more, per gallon on average a year ago.

The AAA survey found a 55-cent range in prices, from a low of $3.32 a gallon to a high of $3.87 a gallon.
