Hawaii gas prices have stayed in the same place for nearly a month, with only Hilo showing a slight dip over the past week, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price is $3.11, which is one cent higher than a week ago, the same price on this date a month ago and 25 cents more than a year ago, according to GasPrices.AAA.com

 

In Honolulu, today’s average price for regular is $2.94, which is unchanged from last Thursday, one cent more than a month ago and 19 cents higher than last year. The Hilo average price is $3.11, which is two cents lower than last Thursday, two cents lower than on this date last month and 32 cents higher on this date a year ago.  Wailuku’s average is $3.53, which is unchanged from last Thursday and last month and, and 24 cents higher than on this date a year ago.

 

“While the rest of the nation has seen prices climb and fall as a result of hurricanes in Texas and Florida, Hawaii’s price has been very stable,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. “Still, Hawaii’s average price remains the highest in the nation. So to save on gasoline, AAA recommends drivers consolidate errands and trips, shop around for the best gas price and remove excess items from the vehicle, excluding the spare tire.”

 

Motorists can find current prices along their route with the free AAA Mobile app for iPhone, iPad and Android. The app also can be used by AAA members to map a trip, find discounts, book a AAA-rated hotel and access AAA roadside assistance. AAA Hawaii reminds drivers that AAA continues to help travelers and the public with fuel information on GasPrices.AAA.com.
