Gas price averages stayed stable throughout the islands in the last week, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price is $3.66 a gallon, which is the same as last Thursday, one cent higher than a month ago and 11 cents lower than on this date a year ago, according to GasPrices.AAA.com

In Honolulu, today’s average price for regular is $3.53, which is unchanged for the week, a cent higher than a month ago and 11 cents lower than on this date last year. The Hilo average price is $3.78, which is the same as last Thursday, three cents more than on this date last month and eight cents lower than on this date a year ago. 

In Kahului, the average price is $3.84, which is unchanged from last Thursday, also unchanged from a month ago and 23 cents lower than on this date a year ago.  Lihue’s average price for regular is $3.84, which is the same as last Thursday, two cents higher than last month and 13 cents lower than a year ago today. 

“Gas prices have dropped throughout the U.S. in recent weeks as oil prices have dipped considerably, but unfortunately that has not been the case for Hawaii,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaii general manager. “It’s possible we could see some price drops in the coming months if oil prices remain low.”

Motorists can find current gas prices along their route with the free AAA Mobile app for iPhone, iPad and Android. The app can also be used to map a route, find AAA discounts, book a hotel and access AAA Roadside Assistance. Learn more at AAA.com/Mobile.
