Hawaii gas prices dropped slightly in most parts of the state during the past week, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch.  The statewide average price is $2.70, three cents less than last Thursday, 12 cents less than last month and 86 cents less than a year ago.

 Honolulu’s average gas price is $2.54 today, two cents less than last Thursday, 15 cents less than last month and 90 cents less than this time last year.  In Hilo, the average gas price is $2.59 per gallon, a penny less than last week, 7 cents less than last month and 92 cents less than this time a year ago.  Wailuku’s average is $3.29, two cents more than last Thursday, a penny less than last month and 48 cents less than at this time last year.

 “Overall, Hawaii continues to benefit from oil prices below $40 per barrel and good inventories world-side,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. “This is a nice Christmas gift to motorists as they celebrate the end of the year.”

 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.
