In Honolulu, today’s average price for regular unleaded is $3.07 per gallon, which is unchanged for three consecutive weeks, two cents more than a month ago and 48 cents lower than the price on this date last year. The Hilo average gas price is $3.49, which is one cent more than last week and a month ago and 29 cents lower than on this date a year ago.
In Kahului, the average price is $3.51, which is three cents higher than last week, three cents higher than last month, and 34 cents lower than on this date a year ago. Lihue’s average price for regular is $3.60, which is unchanged from a week ago, two cents higher than month and 27 cents lower than a year ago today.
“Because demand has remained consistently at the same level over the past few weeks, prices haven’t changed much either,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaii general manager. “AAA reminds car owners to drive their vehicles periodically so fluids are circulated, the battery gets recharged and tires don’t wear unevenly.”
