The Hawaii average state gas price continues to hover at $4.35 per gallon of regular gasoline, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch.  The state average price of regular has fluttered between $4.35 and $4.37 since May 13.  The price is the same as last Thursday, two cents less than last month and a penny less than a year ago.

 

Honolulu’s average price remained steady at $4.34 a gallon for regular unleaded – unchanged for seven weeks and ten cents more than a year ago. In Hilo, the average gas price is $4.16 per gallon, down two cents from last week, a penny less than a month ago and 19 cents less than this time a year ago.  Wailuku’s average is $4.46 a gallon, unchanged since last Thursday, equal to last month and 14 cents less than a last year.  

 

“The situation in Iraq certainly has the potential to drive local gas prices higher, but it’s unclear whether that will happen,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. “We recommend that drivers continue to drive moderately and use other gas saving methods, to manage their fuel expenses.”
