Today’s statewide average price is $3.61 a gallon, which is 11 cents lower than last Thursday, 30 cents lower than a month ago and 22 cents more than a year ago, according to GasPrices.AAA.com.

“While gas prices are still expensive compared to last year or other regions of the country, they’re getting lower with the Western United States gas price averages declining over the past week,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawai‘i general manager. “Hawai‘i’s state average drop of 11 cents a gallon was the largest state average decline in the nation with California (-8 cents) and Washington (-6 cents) not far behind.”
