Hawaii gas prices came to a standstill in most areas after dropping for six straight weeks, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. The average regular unleaded gas price for Hawaii is $5.30, which is the same as last week. The average national price is $3.75, which is down eight cents from a week ago.

In Honolulu, today’s average price for regular unleaded is $5.20, which is the same as last week, 12 cents lower than a month ago, and $1.20 higher than the price on this date last year. The Hilo average gas price is $5.22, which is two cents lower than last week, 24 cents lower than last month, and $1.10 higher than on this date a year ago.

In Kahului, the average price of $5.50 is unchanged from last week, 11 cents lower than last month and $1.39 higher than a year ago. Lihue’s average price for regular is $5.63, which is the same as last week, nine cents lower than last month, and $1.31 higher than a year ago.

“Hawaii was a top Labor Day weekend destination, likely contributing to stronger demand for gasoline in the past week,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaii general manager. “Normally as we enter the fall and winter months, gasoline demand typically declines and pump prices drop.”

AAA Hawaii reminds drivers they can save money on gasoline by shopping around virtually using a tool like the AAA Mobile app, which shows users the cheapest gas prices near them. AAA members can also take advantage of discounted gas prices at participating Shell gas stations by joining the Shell Fuel Rewards® program.
