Gas prices moved by a penny or less over the past week in most of the islands, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price is $3.07, which is one cent more than last Thursday, one cent higher than a month ago, and 49 cents higher than on this date a year ago, according to GasPrices.AAA.com

 

In Honolulu, today’s average price is $2.92, which is one cent more than last Thursday, two cents higher than on this date last month and 55 cents higher than last year.  The Hilo average price is $3.04, which is down a penny from last week, two cents higher than on this date last month and 39 cents higher than on this date a year ago.  Wailuku’s average is $3.50, which is the same price as last Thursday, one cent more than a month ago, and 41 cents higher than on this date a year ago.

 

“Since January of this year, the state average gasoline price has remained between $3.01 and $3.11 a gallon, which is remarkably stable for this time of year,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida.  “And although drivers are paying about 50 cents per gallon more than in 2016 at this time, their fuel bills are at the second-lowest levels for this time of year since 2009.”

 

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 AAA-rated hotel and access AAA roadside assistance. AAA Hawaii reminds drivers that AAA continues to help travelers and the public with fuel information on GasPrices.AAA.com.
