Hawaii gas prices have stayed mostly stable for more than a month, with Hilo gaining back the slight price dip from the previous week, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price is $3.11, which is unchanged from last Thursday, the same price on this date a month ago and 22 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, and on this date last month and 16 cents higher than last year. The Hilo average price is $3.13, which is two cents higher than last Thursday, one cent lower on this date last month and 34 cents higher on this date a year ago.  Wailuku’s average is $3.54, which is up a penny from last Thursday, the same price on this date last month and 23 cents higher than on this date a year ago.

 

“Gas prices in our region continue to remain stable, while California anticipates a 12-cent a gallon price increase to fund transportation improvements,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. “On a traffic safety note, AAA reminds pedestrians that Honolulu Police will now enforce the first texting while walking law enacted by a major city in the nation. So be alert, look both ways and pocket your phone or digital camera to walk and cross safely.”

 

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.
