Gas prices either dipped or remained steady over the past week throughout the islands, according to the AAA Hawaiʻi Weekend Gas Watch.

Wailuku’s average is $3.49, which is one cent lower than last Thursday, the same price on this date a month ago, and 30 cents higher than on this date a year ago.
In Honolulu, today’s average price is $2.90, which is the same price as last Thursday, the same price on this date last month and 47 cents higher than last year. The Hilo average price is $3.02, which is down two cents from last week, two cents lower on this date last month and 28 cents higher than on this date a year ago.
“The West Coast continues to lead the nation with the highest gas prices but motorists can temper those costs by driving their most fuel-efficient vehicle most frequently,” said AAA Hawaiʻi General Manager Liane Sumida. “Demand in the region continues to dip into high oil inventories, but not enough to deplete the unseasonably high supplies,” she said.
