Gas prices declined throughout most of Hawaii over the past week according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price is $2.78, three cents less since last Thursday, one cent lower than a month ago, and 53 cents lower than a year ago, according to GasPrices.AAA.com

 

In Honolulu, today’s average price is $2.60, which is two cents less since last Thursday, the same price on this date last month and 61 cents lower than last year.  The Hilo average price is $2.80, six cents lower than last Thursday, 10 cents lower than last month and 47 cents lower than on this date a year ago.  Wailuku’s average is $3.27, a penny more since last Thursday, the same price on this date last month and 18 cents less than on this date a year ago.

 

“Gas prices continue to drop on the West Coast and West Coast prices remain low versus a year ago,” according to AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida.  “In Honolulu, drivers are saving 61 cents per gallon on average than on this date a year ago.  Drivers can continue to enjoy fuel savings by continuing to shop for the lowest price, maintaining their vehicle, including proper tire inflation, shopping online and planning errands efficiently.”

 

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. AAA Hawaii reminds drivers that AAA continues to help travelers and the public with fuel information on the redesigned and renamed GasPrices.AAA.com.
