Statewide gas prices declined slightly again over the past week, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price is $2.60, one cent less than a week ago, three cents less than last month and 41 cents less than a year ago, according to the AAA Fuel Gauge Report. 

 

In Honolulu, today’s average price is $2.41, which is two cents less than last week, five cents less than last month and 51 cents lower than last year.  The Hilo average price is $2.55, down one cent from last Thursday, a penny lower than last month and 42 cents lower than on this date a year ago.  Wailuku’s average is $3.12, one cent lower since last week, three cents less than last month and one cent more than at this time last year.

 

“Hawaii ($2.60) leads the market with an average pump price that is 24 cents a gallon above second-place California ($2.36),” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. “Regional neighbors Alaska ($2.25), Nevada ($2.05) and Washington ($2.03) round out the nation’s top five most expensive markets for retail gasoline. The nation’s least expensive markets for gas are Oklahoma ($1.42), Missouri ($1.46) and Kansas ($1.47), and motorists in 33 states are paying averages at or below $1.75 per gallon.”
