Hawaii gas prices remained stable for a second straight week and are still lower than the prices drivers were paying this time last year, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price is $3.65 a gallon, which is one cent lower than last Thursday, one cent higher than a month ago and eight cents lower than on this date a year ago, according to GasPrices.AAA.com

In Honolulu, today’s average price for regular is $3.53, which is unchanged from Thursday, one cent higher than on this date a month ago and seven cents lower than on this date last year. The Hilo average price is $3.74, which is unchanged from last Thursday, two cents higher than on this date last month and four cents lower than on this date a year ago. 

In Kahului, the average price is $3.83, which is the same price as last Thursday, the same price as on this date last month and 21 cents lower than on this date a year ago.  Lihue’s average price for regular is $3.84, which is unchanged from last Thursday, the same as on this date last month and four cents lower than a year ago today.  Wailuku’s average is $3.83, which is the same price as last Thursday, the same price as on this date a month ago and 21 cents lower than on this date a year ago.

“Much of the rest of the U.S. is experiencing significant gas price drops because of a big downturn in the price of West Texas Intermediate crude oil, but Hawaii imports oil from other sources and therefore has not yet gotten a similar pump price drop,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaii general manager.
