AAA Hawaii: Gas prices mixed

Gas Station

Local gas prices were a mix of modest increases and a decrease in the surveyed areas compared to last week, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch.

The Hawaii state average for regular unleaded is $4.36 per gallon, a penny more than last week, two cents more than last month and 15 cents less than on this day last year.

Honolulu’s average price is $4.24 a gallon for regular unleaded, one cent less than last week, the same price as last month and down 11 cents from a year ago.

In Hilo, the average gas price is $4.39 per gallon, which is three cents more than last week, two cents more than last month and 26 cents less than this time a year ago.

Wailuku’s average is $4.58 a gallon, a penny more than last week, seven cents more than last month and 30 cents less than the price last year.

“Today, gasoline price state averages around the country show a wide variance from Hawaii’s $4.36 a gallon to Michigan’s $4.23 to Louisiana’s $3.31 demonstrating different regional effects of location, supply and demand,” AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida said.
