In good tidings for motorists, gasoline prices keep dropping in Rhode Island. Triple A reports that for the first time since March, 2009, that the average gas price has fallen below $2 per gallon.

AAA’s survey of prices in RI, released this morning, shows that self-serve regular unleaded gas is averaging $1.99 per gallon.

The pump price drooped even lower in Massachusetts, where self-serve regular is averaging $1.95 per gallon. January traditionally brings a low demand for motor fuel, according to Mary Maguire, AAA public affairs director.

``That factor, combined with falling crude oil prices and an abundant domestic supply, continues to drive down prices,’’ said Maguire.

Prices at the pump in Massachusetts and Rhode Island are at their lowest points since 2009.
