Maui Gas Prices Remain Constant
Maui gas prices in Kahului and Wailuku averaged $3.60 a gallon for regular. That’s the same price as last Thursday, five cents higher than last month and 32 cents lower than a year ago.
Gas prices increased in most areas of the islands in the past week, according to the AAA Hawaiʻi Weekend Gas Watch.
Today’s statewide average price is $3.37 a gallon, which is three cents higher than last Thursday, 11 cents higher than a month ago and 14 cents less than a year ago, according to GasPrices.AAA.com.
“Since early February, gasoline demand has been steadily increasing while gasoline stocks have been gradually decreasing, causing more expensive pump prices across the country,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaiʻi general manager. “The good news is most motorists are not paying more than they were a year ago to fill up.”
In Honolulu, today’s average price for regular is $3.24, which is five cents higher than last Thursday, 13 cents higher than on this date a month ago and 11 cents lower than on this date last year.
The Hilo average price is $3.48, which is up three cents from last Thursday, 11 cents lower than on this date last month and five cents lower than on this date a year ago.
Līhue’s average price for regular is $3.58, which is six cents higher than last Thursday, 12 cents higher than on this date last month and four cents lower than a year ago today.
