AAA Hawaiʻi: Little Movement For Gas PricesFebruary 23, 2017, 3:16 PM HST (Updated February 23, 2017, 3:17 PM) · 0 Comments
Gas prices moved very slightly in most of the islands over the past week, according to the AAA Hawaiʻi Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price is $3.11, which is unchanged from last Thursday, five cents higher than a month ago, and 53 cents higher than on this date a year ago, according to GasPrices.AAA.com.
Wailuku’s average is $3.51 today, which is two cents higher than last Thursday, four cents higher than on this date last month and 41 cents above this date a year ago.
In Honolulu, today’s average price is $2.97, which is one cent less than last Thursday, three cents more than on this date last month and 61 cents higher than last year. The Hilo average price is $3.08, which is one cent above last Thursday, three cents higher than on this date last month and 49 cents higher than on this date a year ago.
“Hawaiʻi continues to have the highest average statewide price in the US, but at the moment supplies are adequate and there’s not a lot of upward price pressure,” said AAA Hawaiʻi General Manager Liane Sumida. “However, if prices follow their usual pattern, we can expect more increases in the next few months.”
AAA Hawaiʻi advises motorists to save fuel by regularly checking their tire pressure, properly maintaining their vehicles, taking excess weight out of the trunk, and shopping around virtually for the lowest gas prices with the free AAA Mobile app, which shows the cheapest gas price nearest to them right on the home screen.
