The price of gasoline in Rhode Island is up one cent this week.

AAA Northeast said Monday in its weekly survey that self-serve, regular unleaded is averaging $2.58 per gallon in Rhode Island, which is two cents above the national average of $2.56.

Local prices for a gallon of gas topped out at $2.89 a gallon Monday, almost a dime more than the state average of $2.80, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 5,269 gas outlets in Pennsylvania.

"Our usual autumn pump price plunge was interrupted by rising oil prices", AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said in a statement. That's caused supply levels to tighten and gas prices to increase.

The auto club said the spike, which occurred in other state as well, was unseasonable but they had predicted last week that increases were expected because of demand issues.

The hurricane season also played a role in gas prices: the highest, according to GasBuddy, was earlier this year just after Hurricane Harvey hit the Gulf Coast of Texas. "Fortunately, domestic oil supply and production made solid gains". It's the third consecutive week that the Marquette area had the highest reported average price.
