Gas prices in most parts of the state moved down slightly during the past week, according to the AAA Hawaiʻi Weekend Gas Watch, but gas in the Metro area of Wailuku on Maui was up from week, month and year before levels.
Wailuku’s average is $3.52, which is one cent higher than last Thursday, three cents higher than on this date last month and 41 cents above this date a year ago.
Today’s statewide average price is $3.09, which is down two cents from last Thursday, a penny higher than a month ago, and 53 cents higher than on this date a year ago, according to GasPrices.AAA.com.
In Honolulu, today’s average price is $2.95, which is two cents less than last Thursday, one cent more than on this date last month and 53 cents higher than last year.
The Hilo average price is $3.07, which is one cent less last Thursday, one cent higher than on this date last month and 52 cents higher than on this date a year ago.
“Hawaiʻi continues to have the highest average statewide price in the US, and supplies remain sufficient to keep prices fairly flat for the time being,” said AAA Hawaiʻi General Manager Liane Sumida. “Much of it depends on how oil prices move in the next weeks, and that is pretty stable at the moment, too.”
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 for the lowest prices.
