PROVIDENCE – Gasoline prices rose in Rhode Island and Massachusetts this week, ending a month-long streak of falling prices, according to the weekly survey by AAA Southern New England.

Self-serve, unleaded regular varied in price from $3.65 to $3.94 across the Ocean State in the survey. The average per-gallon prices for different grades of gas ranged from $3.94 for mid-grade unleaded to $4.02 for premium unleaded to $3.99 for diesel.
