Gas prices fall 2 cents, to $2.16 a gallon, in Rhode Island

Average retail gas prices in Dayton have fallen 14.3 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.09 per gallon on Sunday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 391 gas outlets in Dayton.

The lowest average price was about $2.06 per gallon in the Benton Harbor area, while the highest was around $2.24 in the Marquette area. Drivers are paying the same price per gallon month-over-month, and 8 cents less per gallon year-over-year. S, Garland, had Enid's cheapest gas Monday at $1.82 per gallon.

The highest average price for regular gas in the contiguous US was $2.80 in San Francisco.

The national average Sunday was $2.21, up from the $2.20 mark of the prior Sunday and a decrease from the $2.29 figure from the same time in 2015. Two states in the region feature in the top-15 lowest -Oklahoma ($2.02) and Missouri ($2.01).

"It's been nearly a week since service has been restored to Colonial Pipeline's Line No. 1, a major gasoline source for the southeast and Atlantic seaboard." said Gregg Laskoski, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy.

"While it appears that the worst may be behind us, we're not out of the woods yet, where gasoline inventory levels are concerned", he said. The fluctuating prices can likely be attributed to the transport of gasoline to the southeast due to issues on the Colonial Pipeline.

West Texas Intermediate crude oil was trading at $45.89 per barrel as of 11:18 a.m., compared with a 52-week range of $34.10 to $54.01.
