Maui Gas Prices Stable Before Record Holiday Travel
Maui gas prices in Kahului and Wailuku averaged $3.83 a gallon. That’s unchanged since last Thursday, the same price as last month, and 25 cents lower than last year.
Hawaiʻi gas prices moved very little over the past week as a record number of travelers prepare to drive, fly and ride to Independence Day holiday getaways, according to the AAA Hawaiʻi Weekend Gas Watch.
Today’s statewide average price is $3.64 a gallon, which is one cent lower than last Thursday, unchanged from a month ago and ten cents lower than a year ago, according to AAA.
“Oʻahu and Maui are among this year’s top ten destinations for Independence Day travelers, so that may boost local gasoline demand in the next week or so,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaiʻi general manager.
In Honolulu, today’s average price for regular is $3.52, which is a penny lower than last Thursday, also a penny lower than on this date a month ago and eight cents lower than on this date last year.
The Hilo average price is $3.73, which is down one cent from last Thursday, two cents more than on this date last month and five cents lower than on this date a year ago.
Lihue’s average price for regular is $3.82, which is two cents lower than last Thursday, one cent lower than on this date last month and six cents lower than a year ago today.
