“As a record number of Pacific state residents prepare to get away for the year-end holidays, those from Hawaii are paying less for gasoline than at this time last year and overall have saved on their gasoline expenses compared to 2022,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaii general manager. “The 2022 annual Hawaii state average for gasoline was $5.14 a gallon, the highest ever recorded. The 2022 year-to-date average price is $4.80 – 34 cents per gallon lower.”
