Hawaii gas prices are a mix across the islands for the week statewide, but with Honolulu seeing an increase from last Thursday, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price is $2.74, the same price as last Thursday, one cent higher than a month ago, and 28 cents lower than a year ago, according to GasPrices.AAA.com

 

In Honolulu, today’s average price is $2.60, which is up three cents from last Thursday, seven cents less since on this date last month and 27 cents lower than last year.  The Hilo average price is $2.66, three   cents lower than last Thursday, 10 cents lower than last month and 28 cents lower than on this date a year ago.  Wailuku’s average is $3.24, which is the same price as last Thursday, four cents less than on this date last month and 15 cents less than on this date a year ago.

 

“Drivers in the western states continue to pay the most at the pump,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. “Hawaii at $2.74 per gallon today is the highest statewide average price in the country, but all major cities in Southern California have higher average prices than Honolulu, with a $2.60 average price today.”

 

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.
