Honolulu’s average price is $4.15 a gallon for regular unleaded – a nickel more than last week, 18 cents more than last month and 26 cents less than a year ago. In Hilo, the average gas price is $4.10 per gallon, two cents less than last week, 17 cents more than last month and 24 cents less than this time a year ago.  Wailuku’s average is $4.33 a gallon, a penny more than last Thursday, nine cents more than last month and 21 cents less on this day last year.  


“Take routes with fewer stoplights, if possible,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. “Fewer stoplights, and maybe lighter traffic with help fuel efficiency,” she added.
