“Honolulu motorists enjoyed savings at the retail pump again this week,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. “But average gas prices on the mainland have shifted upward for the past 2-3 weeks and only Idaho, Montana, Utah and Wyoming remain under $2 a gallon now.  Motorists can locate prices here and on the mainland at www.fuelgaugereport.aaa.com.”
