Hawaii gas prices remained stable or dropped slightly over the past week, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price is $3.11, which is the same as a week ago, three cents more than on this date a month ago and 29 cents more than a year ago, according to GasPrices.AAA.com

 

In Honolulu, today’s average price for regular is $2.93, down one cent since last Thursday, two cents higher than last month and 24 cents higher than last year. The Hilo average price is $3.13, which is two cents lower than last Thursday, one cent higher than on this date last month and 45 cents higher than on this date a year ago.  Wailuku’s average is $3.53, which is unchanged from last Thursday, up five cents from this date a month ago, and 29 cents higher than on this date a year ago.

 

“As we enter a season which typically experiences lower gasoline demand, we can expect to see prices drop locally provided there are no supply issues,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. “Honolulu drivers continue to pay lower gasoline prices than motorists in all major California cities as well as most cities in the state of Washington."

 

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