Approaching the Thanksgiving holiday, Hawaii pump prices declined throughout the islands during the last week, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price is $2.89, which is a penny lower than last Thursday, three cents higher than a month ago, and five cents higher on this date a year ago, according to GasPrices.AAA.com 

 

In Honolulu, today’s average price is $2.76, which is two cents lower than last Thursday, three cents more than on this date last month and five cents higher than last year.  The Hilo average price is $2.84, which is down a penny since last Thursday, five cents higher than last month and 12 cents higher than on this date a year ago.  Wailuku’s average is $3.29, which is two cents lower than last Thursday, the same price on this date last month and three cents more than on this date a year ago.

 

“Pump prices have fallen for more than a week across the country and even Hawaii motorists are enjoying a price dip since last week,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida.  “Gas prices in the West continue to be the highest in the country with Hawaii at $2.89, California at $2.72, Washington at $2.65, Alaska at $2.62, Oregon at $2.46, and Nevada at $2.49,” she added.

 

Motorists can find current prices along their route with the free AAA Mobile app for iPhone, iPad and Android, available at AAA.com/mobile. The app also can be used by AAA members to map a trip, find discounts, book a hotel and access AAA roadside assistance.
