Gas in Wailuku, Maui was up a penny from a week ago, up a three cents from a month ago, and up 20 cents from the same time last year — according to the AAA Daily Fuel Gauge report.
The report listed the price of regular unleaded gas today at: $4.21 in Wailuku; $3.90 in Hilo; and $3.85 in Honolulu.
The statewide average was $3.95, up two cents from a week ago, and down nearly four cents from the same time last year, according to the report.
Overall, a Weekend Gas Watch report issued by AAA Hawaiʻi showed an increase in gas prices over the past week, and a drop in gas prices from a year ago in Honolulu and Hilo.
“A look in the New Year at monthly price averages around the US show Alaska at $3.65 a gallon for unleaded, California at $3.66, Oklahoma at $3.06 and Montana at $3.00,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida in a press release issued today.
