Prices are holding steady as drivers demanded less gas over the last week.

A gallon of gas was $3.42 on average, according to AAA gas price data. Stacker compiled statistics on gas prices in Rhode Island. Gas prices are as of February 17. The state gas tax data is from World Population Review.

Colorado, Florida and Indiana have seen the price of gas per gallon increase the most in the last week, each recording a more than $0.10 jump. Prices could inch up further in the coming weeks. Gas prices tend to increase in March as higher demand for travel over spring break can drive prices upward for consumers.

Looking further out, the Energy Information Administration projects that 2023 and 2024 will feature gas prices that are below 2022’s record levels. The agency forecasts $3 per gallon gas on average for the full year 2024.
