More price drops this last week of 2015 mean Hawaii drivers continue to enjoy some of the lowest gas prices since 2009 and this year they saved hundreds of dollars at the pump compared to 2014, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch.  The statewide average price today is $2.69, one cent less than last Thursday, 12 cents less than last month and 82 cents less than a year ago.

 

Honolulu’s average gas price is $2.52 today, two cents less than last Thursday, 14 cents less than last month and 85 cents less than this time last year.  In Hilo, the average gas price is $2.59 per gallon, unchanged from last week, 8 cents less than last month and 89 cents less than this time a year ago.  Wailuku’s average is $3.25, four cents less than last Thursday, five cents less than last month and 50 cents less than at this time last year.

 

“Hawaii’s average gas price for all of 2015 is $3.10 per gallon for regular unleaded, which is $1.05 lower than the $4.15 average price for all of 2014,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. “For the Hawaii driver who travels 8,000 miles a year in a car getting 20 miles to the gallon, on average he or she spent $420 less on gas in 2015 than in 2014.”
