In Honolulu, today’s average price is $2.90, which is the same price as last Thursday, four cents less than on this date last month and 49 cents higher than last year.  The Hilo average price is $3.02, which is unchanged since last week, one cent lower on this date last month and 41 cents higher than on this date a year ago.  Wailuku’s average is $3.52, which is two cents higher than last Thursday, two cents higher than a month ago and 40 cents higher than on this date a year ago.

 

“Gas prices on the West Coast remain the highest in the country, with six states in the region topping the list of most expensive U.S. markets: Hawaii ($3.06), California ($2.97), Washington ($2.84), Alaska ($2.84), Oregon ($2.74) and Nevada ($2.66),”said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida.  “It’s spring so motorists should get their vehicle maintenance up to date so they may use a car that can get the best fuel economy possible.”   

 

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.
