“Healthy refinery output and increased gasoline imports are contributing to high inventory volume, which has kept prices in the region mostly stable, according to a recent Energy Information Administration report,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida.  “With New Year’s resolutions still fresh, now is the time to find a great mechanic you can work with to get your vehicle in shape to maximize gas mileage, vehicle performance and safety.
