AAA: Gas prices increase in RI, Mass.

"This small price increase follows a period of solid demand and some declines in the glut of crude oil that have kept prices low so far this summer", AAA Northeast's Senior Vice President of Public and Government Affairs Lloyd Albert said in a statement. "While this could be the start of a gradual uptick in gas prices, drivers are likely to continue saving at the pump compared to what they paid earlier this year", Jenkins said.

The global glut of oil, including rising US production levels, has kept the industry from rebounding too much since a two-year oil bust that began in late 2014.
