In Honolulu, today’s average price for regular is $2.94, which is unchanged from last Thursday, the same price on this date a month ago and 21 cents higher than last year. The Hilo average price is $3.13, which is unchanged from last Thursday, one cent higher on this date last month and 36 cents higher on this date a year ago.  Wailuku’s average is $3.53, which is one cent lower than last Thursday, one cent higher than on this date a month ago and 27 cents higher than on this date a year ago.

 

“The Honolulu weekly average price has been hovering from $2.90 to $2.93 since August, which provides stability for consumers’ budgets,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. “To stretch dollars even further and improve gas mileage, consolidate errands and trips, shop around for the best gas price and remove excess items from the vehicle, excluding the spare tire.”
