“Oil prices seem to have stopped rising for now, and our prices reflect the stall with smaller increases compared to last week,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaii general manager. “Hawaii’s average price is the second highest state average in the nation. The highest average price belongs to California at $3.40 per gallon.”
