Gas prices remained stable throughout most of the state, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price is $3.05, which is one cent less since last Thursday, one cent lower than a month ago, and 44 cents higher than on this date a year ago, according to GasPrices.AAA.com

 

In Honolulu, today’s average price is $2.91, which is one cent more since last Thursday, three cents less than on this date last month and 48 cents higher than last year.  The Hilo average price is $3.02, which is unchanged since last week, four cents lower on this date last month and 41 cents higher than on this date a year ago.  Wailuku’s average is $3.50, which is two cents lower than last Thursday, one cent lower than a month ago and 38 cents higher than on this date a year ago.

 

“While Honolulu gas prices have been hovering in roughly about the $2.90 range, motorists should continue to shop around for the best price possible, consolidate errands and make sure their spring car maintenance is up to date for the best gas mileage,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. 

 

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 AAA-rated hotel and access AAA roadside assistance.
