Retail gasoline prices in Hawaii have remained relatively flat for nearly two months, with the state average waffling between $4.35 and $4.33 per gallon, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch.  The current price average is $4.34, one cent less than last month and about three cents lower than a year ago.

 

Honolulu’s average price stayed the same as last week at $4.31, a penny less than last month and seven cents more than a year ago. In Hilo, the average gas price is $4.15 per gallon, the same as last week, a penny more than last month ago and 24 cents less than this time a year ago.  Wailuku’s average is $4.46 a gallon, the same price as last Thursday, the same price on this day last month and ten cents less than last year.  

 

“Although gasoline prices have remained stable for many weeks, the state average is 78 cents higher than the national average and that difference is eight cents more than last year at this time,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. “We’ll have to see if falling oil and gas prices in other parts of the country will trickle down to Hawaii.”
