PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Gasoline prices in Rhode Island have dropped a penny from last week, but local drivers continue to pay a lot more than the national average.

The latest price survey released Monday by AAA Southern New England found the average cost of a gallon of self-serve regular in the state is $3.53.

Locally, prices are up 4 cents from a month ago.

The average in Rhode Island a year ago at this time was the same.

The current price is 21 cents higher than the national per-gallon average of $3.32.

The AAA survey found a 17-cent price range, from a low of $3.47 to a high of $3.64.
