Hold your horses: Gas hits record high in R.I.
We've heard it more than once, gas prices in Rhode Island continue to climb. They've reached a record high -- the highest ever recorded by AAA.
According to AAA's weekly survey, self-serve, unleaded gasoline is averaging $3.24 in Rhode Island, 4 cents pricier than last week's average. That price beats the previous record -- set in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina -- by a penny. The prices, however, are not adjusted for inflation.
We're still behind the national average of $3.37. Last year at this time, unleaded was averaging $2.79 in the Ocean State.
AAA, which conducts the survey weekly, suggests shopping around for the best deals because the prices range from $3.16 to $3.33.
You can find current prices online for nearby pumps at AAA's fuel price finder.
