Gas Prices Show No Movement, Wailuku at $3.54
Gas price averages showed little to no movement throughout the islands again this past week, according to the AAA Hawaiʻi Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price is $3.09, up one penny from last Thursday and five cents more than on this date a month ago. Today’s state average price is 38 cents higher than on this date a year ago, according to GasPrices.AAA.com.
The average price for regular gas in Wailuku is $3.54, the same price as last Thursday and the same price on this date last month, and 20 cents higher than on this date a year ago.
In Honolulu, today’s average price for regular is $2.91, the same price as last Thursday, two cents higher than last month and 38 cents higher than last year. The Hilo average price is $3.09, which is one cent higher than last Thursday, nine cents higher than on this date last month and 42 cents higher than on this date a year ago.
“Gas prices in Northwest states rose significantly last week due to an influx of visitors to see the eclipse, so Honolulu drivers today are paying lower pump prices on average than those in Seattle, and just slightly higher than those in Portland,” said AAA Hawaiʻi General Manager Liane Sumida.
