“Gas prices on the West Coast remain the highest in the country.  Fortunately for consumers, West Coast prices are much less than a year ago,” according to AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida.  “Drivers in Hawaii are saving 52 cents per gallon per average than on this date a year ago.  Drivers can conserve gas by keeping their vehicles free of extra items that drag on fuel economy, shopping for the best price and consolidating errands.”

 

Motorists can find current prices along their route with the free AAA Mobile app for iPhone, iPad and Android, available at AAA.com/mobile.
