Gas price averages continued to remain stable in Honolulu for the past three weeks, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price is $3.06, which is one cent higher than last Thursday, one cent more than a month ago, and 37 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, one cent  lower than on this date last month and 39 cents higher than last year.  The Hilo average price is $3.04, which is up one cent from last week, one cent lower than last month and 35 cents higher than on this date a year ago.  Wailuku’s average is $3.52, which is two cents higher than last Thursday, two cents higher than on this date a month ago, and 34 cents higher than on this date a year ago.

 

“Regionally, prices fluctuated between pennies on the week.  On the West Coast, every state earned a spot on the top 10 weekly list of the most expensive markets: California, $3.09, Hawaii, $3.06, Alaska, $2.90, Washington, $2.87, Nevada, $2.74 and Oregon, $2.72,” according to AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. “Motorists can help stretch their gasoline dollars by shopping around for the best price, keeping their car maintenance up to date, and consolidating errands,” 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. AAA Hawaii reminds drivers that AAA continues to help travelers and the public with fuel information on GasPrices.AAA.com.
