PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The price of gas in Rhode Island is up a penny from last week, and is again above the U.S. average.

The latest price survey from AAA Southern New England released Monday found the average cost of a gallon of regular self-serve in the state is $3.72. The local price is 13 cents higher than a month ago. It's also 5 cents more than the national per-gallon average of $3.67.

Rhode Islanders were paying 23 cents less on average, or $3.49 a gallon, a year ago this week.

The AAA survey found a 26-cent range in prices, from a low of $3.53 a gallon to a high of $3.79 a gallon.
