dollars and coins

Local drivers got no surprises at the gas pump all summer, and that trend continued in the last week with no gas price changes, 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 12 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, unchanged from a month ago and 10 cents lower than on this date last year. The Hilo average price is $3.77, which is unchanged from last Thursday, one cent lower than on this date last month and 10 cents lower than on this date a year ago. 

In Kahului, the average price is $3.84, which is unchanged from last Thursday, also the same as a month ago and 23 cents lower than on this date a year ago.  Lihue’s average price for regular is $3.83, which is the same as last Thursday, one cent lower than last month and 15 cents lower than a year ago today. 

“As we head toward the end of the year, we would normally expect gas prices to drop as demand drops,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaii general manager.
