“The July 1 four-cent gas tax increase on the Big Island has increased prices there, but otherwise the state is experiencing remarkable gas price stability this summer,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaii general manager. “We recommend drivers continue to shop around for the lowest priced TOP TIER fuel near them, and take advantage of discount programs such as the AAA Shell discount, which is giving members 15 cents off per gallon for their first three fill-ups and at least five cents off per gallon after that when they sign up for the program at AAA.com/Shell.” 

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.
