In Kahului the average price is $4.12, which is two cents higher than last Thursday, four cents higher than on this date last month and 64 cents higher than on this date a year ago.  Lihue’s average price for regular is $3.95, which is one cent higher than last Thursday, eight cents higher than on this date last month and 65 cents more than a year ago.

“Gas price averages in the majority of the western United States declined over the past week, with Arizona (-3 cents) leading the way and with Hawaii’s state average resting at $3.78 a gallon,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaii general manager. “Honolulu and Hilo had slight price declines while other areas had small price increases,” she added.
