Prices at the pump remain elevated due to strong oil prices.

AAA Northeast said gas prices are up two cents in Rhode Island and up five cents in MA. The first two months of the year are typically the times of year that gasoline demand is at its weakest, and with builds in gasoline stock anticipated next week, prices will have a hard time going much higher in the short term. That price point is then lowered later in the year as a result of low demand. "Unfortunately, springtime is as a springboard for prices at the pump, and we may see a 40 to 50 cent jump by the summer". Since last autumn's maintenance season was interrupted by hurricanes, this spring is likely to be more active than usual for refineries, putting the price hike on the higher end of that 30- t0 75-cent scale, AAA said.
