Average gas prices in Hawai’i changed just slightly during the past week, moving either up or down by a penny or two in most areas, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price for regular is $3.20 a gallon, which is two cents higher than last week, four cents less than a month ago and 46 cents less than the price on this date last year, according to GasPrices.AAA.com.
In Honolulu, today’s average price for regular tipped over $3 per gallon to $3.02, three cents higher than last week, two cents lower than a month ago and 52 cents less than the price on this date last year. The Hilo average price is $3.45, which is two cents higher than a week ago, a penny lower than a month ago and 30 cents lower than on this date a year ago.
In Kahului, the average price is $3.42, which is two cents lower than last Thursday, two cents lower than a month ago and 42 cents lower than on this date a year ago. Lihue’s average price for regular is $3.50, two cents lower than last Thursday, three cents lower than last month and 35 cents lower than a year ago today.
“While gas prices are inching up in many areas, they have remained relatively stable compared to other parts of the country and are still about 30-50 cents lower than this time last year,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaii general manager. “Yet, we still have the highest state average gas price in the nation. As the local economy and tourism increase, we would expect prices to increase, too.”
