Maui gas prices in Kahului and Wailuku averaged $3.82 for regular. That’s four cents higher than last Thursday, 14 cents higher than last month and 14 cents lower than a year ago.
Gas prices increased throughout the islands but more slowly from the previous week, according to the AAA Hawaiʻi Weekend Gas Watch .
Today’s statewide average price is $3.62 a gallon, which is three cents higher than last Thursday, 22 cents higher than a month ago and one cent more than a year ago, according to AAA.
“Gasoline stocks nationwide continue to tighten, measuring below levels compared to the same time in the past three years. While imports are helping and Western United States refinery maintenance is nearly finished, it’s too early to know if this is enough to keep state averages from leveling off just yet,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaiʻi general manager. “The Energy Information Administration’s weekly report showed that West Coast gasoline stocks fell for the fifth week by nearly 800,000 barrels and now sit at 28.2 million barrels.”
