dollars and coins

Average gas prices in most regions climbed another seven to eight cents compared to last week, giving most regions a 13-14 cent increase in two weeks, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch.  The average price for Hawaii is $4.17, up seven cents from last week.  The average national price is $3.37, also up seven cents from last week.

In Honolulu, today’s average price for regular unleaded is $4.16, which is up seven cents from a week ago, 17 cents higher than a month ago, and $1.07 higher than the price on this date last year. The Hilo average gas price is $4.28, which is eight cents higher than last week, 15 cents higher than last month, and 77 cents higher than on this date a year ago.

In Kahului, the average price is $4.31, which is up eight cents compared to last week, 19 cents higher than last month, and 79 cents higher than on this date a year ago. Lihue’s average price for regular is $4.49, which is eight cents higher compared to last week, 19 cents higher than last month and 87 cents higher than a year ago today.

“While we are seeing average gas prices at levels not seen since 2014, they are still 30-40 cents below the all-time records set in 2012,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaii general manager. “The price for the U.S. benchmark oil dropped $2 per barrel today.  We will have to see if that price drop holds and if it will affect retail prices.”
