Gas prices have not changed much over the past week but in most areas, they are now higher than on this date a year ago for the first time in several months, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price is $3.67 a gallon, which is one cent higher than last week, one cent higher than a month ago and four cents higher than on this date a year ago, according to GasPrices.AAA.com

In Honolulu, today’s average price for regular is $3.54, which is one cent higher than last week, the same price as a month ago and six cents higher than on this date last year. The Hilo average price is $3.77, which is one cent lower than a week ago, one cent lower than on this date last month and 15 cents higher than on this date a year ago. 

In Kahului, the average price is $3.83, which is the same as last Thursday, one cent lower than a month ago and 15 cents lower than on this date a year ago.  Lihue’s average price for regular is $3.87, which is one cent higher than last Thursday, unchanged from last month and three cents higher than a year ago today. 

“Last year at this time, gas prices had dropped by about 30 cents during the month of November, and unfortunately in 2019 we are not seeing any signs of the price reductions that are typical for this time of year,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaii general manager.
