“Gas prices in our state have remained remarkably consistent considering the volatility that the international oil markets have seen,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaii general manager. “The state average is still about 13 percent below where it was at this time last year. AAA recommends shopping around for prices lower than the average for your area.”
