Gas prices in many areas inched downward in the last week, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price is $3.67 a gallon, which is one cent lower than last Thursday, one cent higher than a month ago and 19 cents lower than on this date a year ago, according to GasPrices.AAA.com

In Honolulu, today’s average price for regular is $3.55, which is the same as last week, one cent higher than a month ago and 17 cents lower than on this date last year. The Hilo average price is $3.78, which is two cents lower than last Thursday, unchanged from this date last month and 16 cents lower than on this date a year ago. 

In Kahului, the average price is $3.85, which is two cents lower than last Thursday, one cent higher than a month ago and 28 cents lower than on this date a year ago.  Lihue’s average price for regular is $3.87, which is one cent lower than last Thursday, four cents higher than last month and 18 cents lower than a year ago today. 

“It’s too soon to tell if this is a downward trend for Hawaii gas prices that we would expect to happen at this time of year when demand typically drops,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaii general manager.
