PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The price of a gallon of gasoline in Rhode Island is down just in time for Fourth of July holiday travel.

AAA Northeast reports Monday that self-serve regular has dropped 3 cents in the past week to an average of $2.92 per gallon.

That’s 7 cents higher than the national average and 68 cents per gallon higher than the year-ago average.

And even though prices are at their highest point for Independence Day since 2014, they are still 7 cents lower than they were on Memorial Day.

AAA found self-serve regular selling for as low as $2.69 per gallon to as high as $3.09.
