AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch: More Price Drops For Holiday

Thanksgiving table

Editors Note: Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch is being released today.

Continued falling oil prices and lower production costs are the Thanksgiving holiday recipe for lower gas prices around the islands again over the past week, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price is $3.81 a gallon, which is six cents lower than last Wednesday, eight cents lower than a month ago and 63 cents more than a year ago, according to GasPrices.AAA.com

In Honolulu, today’s average price for regular is $3.67, which is seven cents lower than last Wednesday, 11 cents lower than on this date a month ago and 59 cents higher than on this date last year. The Hilo average price is $3.86, which is down six cents from last Wednesday, eight cents more than on this date last month and 65 cents higher than on this date a year ago. 

In Kahului, the average price is $4.14, which is the same price as last Wednesday, one cent lower than on this date last month and 44 cents higher than on this date a year ago.  Lihue’s average price for regular is $3.99, which is four cents lower than last Wednesday, seven cents lower than on this date last month and 53 cents more than a year ago. Wailuku’s average is $4.14, which is two cents lower than last Wednesday, one cent lower than on this date a month ago and 44 cents higher than on this date a year ago.

“Motorists can add cheaper gas prices to their list of ‘things for which to be thankful’ this Thanksgiving holiday,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaii general manager.  “These savings are beneficial for those who are driving to visit family and friends for Thanksgiving as well as those starting holiday shopping this weekend.”   

Motorists can find current gas prices along their route with the free AAA Mobile app for iPhone, iPad and Android. The app can also be used to map a route, find AAA discounts, book a hotel and access AAA Roadside Assistance. Learn more at AAA.com/mobile.
