The average price of gas in Hawaiʻi increased for the ninth straight week, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch.

The statewide average was $4.32 for a gallon of regular gasoline.

The report listed the average price of gas in Wailuku on Thursday, April 17, at $4.42 a gallon, up two cents from last week, and up 11 cents from last month.

Gas prices in other locations across the state included averages of $4.27 in Honolulu, up two cents from last week and 18 cents from last month; $4.21 in Hilo, up nine cents from last week, and nine cents from last month, according to the report.


“Mainland gas prices have increased this spring throughout the US and Los Angeles’ average gas price is higher than Honolulu at $4.30 a gallon, not what we typically see,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida in a company press release.  “Motorists should shop around, use a gentle driving style and avoid jack rabbit starts in order to maximize fuel efficiency,” she said.
