“According to the Energy Information Administration’s latest report for the region, gasoline inventories hit a new milestone: a 10-month high at 31 million barrels,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida.  “The figure is 2.6 million barrels above the inventory level at this time last year – meaning gas prices should continue to remain stable heading into 2018.”
