Gas prices held at their previous week’s levels or experienced slight price increases throughout the islands in the last week, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price is $3.65 a gallon, which is one cent higher than last Thursday, two cents higher than a month ago and seven 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 since last Thursday, two cents higher than on this date a month ago and six cents lower than on this date last year. The Hilo average price is $3.74, which is up two cents from last Thursday, one cent higher as on this date last month and three cents lower than on this date a year ago. 

In Kahului, the average price is $3.83, which is unchanged since last Thursday, one cent higher as on this date last month and 20 cents lower than on this date a year ago.  Lihue’s average price for regular is $3.83, which is unchanged since last Thursday, one cent lower than on this date last month and five cents lower than a year ago today.  Wailuku’s average is $3.83, which is unchanged since last Thursday, one cent higher as on this date a month ago and 20 cents lower than on this date a year ago.

“The Energy Information Administration’s weekly report showed that West Coast gasoline stocks increased by approximately 2.4 million barrels from the previous week and now sit at 30.8 million barrels.  The current level is only 300,000 barrels less than last year’s level at this time, which could cause prices to decline if there are no supply challenges in the region this week,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaii general manager.
