“Last week’s Energy Information Administration report showed West Coast gasoline supplies sit at 28.4 million barrels, which is a gain of 100,000 barrels from the previous week,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaii general manager. “Retail prices locally continue to be mostly flat or slightly higher compared to last week.”
