The company reports that this year, Hawaiʻi drivers saved hundreds of dollars at the pump compared to 2015, according to their Weekend Gas Watch report.

The statewide average price today is $2.69, one cent less than last Thursday, 12 cents less than last month and 82 cents less than a year ago.

Honolulu’s average gas price is listed at $2.52 today, two cents less than last Thursday, 14 cents less than last month and 85 cents less than this time last year.

In Hilo, the average gas price is $2.59 per gallon, unchanged from last week, 8 cents less than last month and 89 cents less than this time a year ago.


AAA Hawaiʻi reports that Wailuku’s average is $3.25, four cents less than last Thursday, five cents less than last month and 50 cents less than at this time last year.


“Hawaii’s average gas price for all of 2015 is $3.10 per gallon for regular unleaded, which is $1.05 lower than the $4.15 average price for all of 2014,” said AAA Hawaiʻi General Manager Liane Sumida in a press release statement. “For the Hawaiʻi driver who travels 8,000 miles a year in a car getting 20 miles to the gallon, on average he or she spent $420 less on gas in 2015 than in 2014.”
