AAA Hawaii: Gas prices dropping

Local gas prices declined in many areas over the last week, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch.

The Hawaii state average for regular unleaded is $4.34 per gallon, which is two cents less than last week, four cents less than last month and 24 cents less than on this day last year.

Honolulu’s average price is $4.24 a gallon for regular unleaded, down three cents since last week, seven cents less than last month and down 20 cents from a year ago.

In Hilo, the average gas price is $4.34 per gallon, which is three cents less than last week, a penny less than last month and 39 cents less than this time a year ago.

Wailuku’s average is $4.51 a gallon, unchanged from last week, three cents less than last month and 38 cents less than the price last year.

“The gas price average here continues to be more than $4 a gallon, followed by Alaska at $3.95 and California at $3.89,” AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida said. “We encourage motorists to check their tire pressure for proper inflation and remove unnecessary items from their vehicle to increase fuel economy.”
