AAA Northeast reports Monday that self-serve, regular is now selling for an average of $2.63 per gallon.
Rhode Island's price is 2 cents higher than the national average for regular, and a full quarter lower than the in-state average of $2.88 a year ago.
An organization spokeswoman says the low prices are good news for drivers heading out for the long Labor Day weekend, taking end-of-summer vacations, or driving their college students back to campus.
AAA found self-serve, regular selling for as $2.44 per gallon and as high as $2.79.
