The Hawaii average state gas price dipped slightly from last week, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch.  The $4.35 a gallon state average is a penny less since last Thursday, three cents less than last month and the same price on this day last year.

 

Honolulu’s average price remained steady at $4.34 a gallon for regular unleaded – unchanged for five weeks and six cents more than a year ago. In Hilo, the average gas price is $4.16 per gallon, down three cents from last week, six cents less on this day last month and 23 cents less than this time a year ago.  Wailuku’s average is $4.46 a gallon, one cent more since last Thursday, two cents less than last month and 11 cents less than on this day last year.  

 

“Since this is the observance of National Tire Safety Week, we encourage motorists to check their car’s tire pressure and get all tires, including the spare, properly inflated,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. “Properly inflated tires reduce gasoline consumption as well as save wear-and-tear on the tires themselves.”
