The Hawaii average state gas price inched down one cent again to $4.33 per gallon during the past week, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch.  The current price average is two cents less than last month and two cents higher than a year ago.

 

Honolulu’s average price dropped by a penny to $4.31, also down two cents from a month ago and 12 cents more than a year ago. In Hilo, the average gas price is $4.11 per gallon, down two cents from last week, seven cents less than a month ago and 21 cents less than this time a year ago.  Wailuku’s average is $4.46 a gallon, one cent less since last Thursday, a penny more than last month and 15 cents less than last year.

 

“The holiday weekend brings slightly lower gas prices to locals and visitors, while increased oil prices have brought higher fuel prices to the mainland,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. “Aside from fuel economy, over Fourth of July family and friends should designate a sober driver when out celebrating where alcohol is being consumed.”
