Hawaii gas prices continued their pattern of stability over the past week, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price is $3.67 a gallon, which is the same as last Thursday, one cent lower than a month ago and 24 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 lower than a month ago and 25 cents lower than on this date last year. The Hilo average price is $3.79, which is one cent higher than last Thursday, one cent lower than on this date last month and 16 cents lower than on this date a year ago. 

In Kahului, the average price is $3.83, which is one cent lower than last Thursday, two cents lower than a month ago and 33 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 19 cents lower than a year ago today. 

“The 10-year gas price average for the state of Hawaii is $3.64 a gallon, and for Honolulu it is $3.52, so prices are treading water near that average level,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaii general manager.
