Hawaii gas prices continue to stay at the same levels even heading into the time of year with the lowest demand, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price is $3.66 a gallon, which is the same as last Thursday, one cent lower than a month ago and 25 cents lower than on this date a year ago, according to GasPrices.AAA.com

In Honolulu, today’s average price for regular is $3.54, which is the same as last week, one cent higher than a month ago and 25 cents lower than on this date last year. The Hilo average price is $3.79, which is the same as last Thursday, one cent higher than on this date last month and 17 cents lower than on this date a year ago. 

In Kahului, the average price is $3.83, which is the same as last Thursday, three cents lower than a month ago and 35 cents lower than on this date a year ago.  Lihue’s average price for regular is $3.87, which is the same as last Thursday, one cent lower than last month and 20 cents lower than a year ago today. 

“We would expect gas prices to begin dropping toward the end of the year as demand drops, but so far that hasn’t been the case,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaii general manager.
