As the New Year opened, Hawaiʻi gas prices continued to remain stable over the past week, according to the AAA Hawaiʻi Weekend Gas Watch.

Gas in Wailuku today was an average $3.76 for a gallon of regular, which is unchanged from last Thursday, eight cents higher than a month ago and 35 cents higher than on this date a year ago.

Today’s statewide average price is $3.29, unchanged from last Thursday, two cents higher than a month ago and 27 cents more than a year ago.

In Honolulu, today’s average price for regular is $3.12, unchanged since last Thursday, the same price on this date a month ago and 22 cents higher than last year at this time. The Hilo average price is $3.27, which is down two cents from last Thursday, one cent more than on this date last month and 33 cents higher than on this date a year ago.

“According to the Energy Information Administration’s latest report, the region’s refinery rate hit a new record high, and is the highest level since the mid-2010’s and well above the 80% rate usually seen at this time of year,” said AAA Hawaiʻi General Manager Liane Sumida. “In addition, gasoline inventories continue to measure about 30 million barrels for a third week, positioning the West Coast region with a comfortable supply level as the year begins.”
