Gas increases six cents, up for 11th straight week
The average price of gasoline has increased for the 11th straight week, hitting $4.079 per gallon for regular, unleaded at self-service pumps in Rhode Island, according to AAA Southern New England's most recent survey.
That's six cents more than last week.
Nationally, the average price hit $4 per gallon this weekend for the first time ever.
Rhode Island drivers are now paying $1.07 more per gallon for gasoline than they were at this time last year, according to AAA's most recent survey.

Here's AAA's fuel saving tip of the week: Use the air conditioner conservatively. Most air conditioners have an “economy” or “recirculation” setting that reduces the amount of hot outside air that must be chilled. Both settings can reduce the air-conditioning load – and save gas.
