NEW: Gas Prices Shoot Up 11 Cents

Monday, April 11, 2011

 

The cost of gas in Rhode Island jumped up 11 more cents, 17 cents above where they were two weeks ago, AAA Southern New England announced today.

AAA’s weekly survey of prices found that the average for self-serve regular unleaded is $3.73 per gallon. The last time prices were at that level was August 2008. One year ago the Rhode Island average was $2.77.

The current national average is $3.77.

AAA Fuel Saving Tip of the Week:

Properly inflate tires. Only 17 percent of cars have all four tires properly inflated, though the U.S. Department of Energy reports that proper tire inflation can improve fuel economy by up to three percent. Check the pressure when the tires are cold and have not been driven on recently. Tires should be inflated to pressure levels recommended by the manufacturer, not the pressure levels stamped on the tire sidewall.
