Honolulu’s average price is $4.10 a gallon for regular unleaded – four cents more than last week, 15 cents more than last month and 21 cents less than a year ago. In Hilo, the average gas price is $4.12 per gallon, three cents more than last week, 17 cents more than last month and 23 cents less than this time a year ago.

“With average fuel prices continuing to go up, it’s important to remember to check the car’s tire pressure, use a moderate driving style and shop around for the best price per gallon,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. “Following these practices will ensure the best fuel efficiency possible.”
