Gas price averages were stable throughout the islands in the last week, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price is $3.05, which is the same price as last Thursday, three cents less than a month ago, and 39 cents higher than on this date a year ago, according to GasPrices.AAA.com

 

In Honolulu, today’s average price is $2.90, which is the same price as last Thursday, two cents lower than on this date last month and 36 cents higher than last year.  The Hilo average price is $3.01, which is down one cent from last week, three cents lower than last month and 30 cents higher than on this date a year ago.  Wailuku’s average is $3.49, which is one cent higher than last Thursday, three cents lower than on this date a month ago, and 32 cents higher than on this date a year ago.

 

“Although Hawaii gas prices are nearly 40 cents a gallon higher than a year ago, they are still the second-lowest for the Memorial Day holiday since 2009,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida.  “At least 36 states saw price hikes over the week and increases are likely the result of rising demand,” she added.    

 

Motorists can find current prices along their route with the free AAA Mobile app for iPhone, iPad and Android, available at AAA.com/mobile. The app also can be used by AAA members to map a trip, find discounts, book a AAA-rated hotel and access AAA roadside assistance.
