Gas price

Hawaii’s average state gas price inched down one cent to $4.34 per gallon during the past week, according to AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch.

That’s two cents less than last month and a penny higher than a year ago.

Honolulu’s average price dropped two cents to $4.32, also down two cents from a month ago and 12 cents more than a year ago.

In Hilo, the average gas price is $4.14 per gallon, down two cents from last week, four cents less than a month ago and 19 cents less than this time a year ago.

Wailuku’s average is $4.47 a gallon, unchanged since last Thursday, a penny more than last month and 22 cents less than last year.

“Although international incidents have increased oil prices, we haven’t seen them affect local prices so far,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. “Still, we recommend that drivers continue to drive moderately and use other gas saving methods, to manage their fuel expenses.”

The average price of a gallon of gasoline as of June 26:

Honolulu: $4.32 (-2 cents from last week)

Hilo: $4.14 (-2 cents from last week)
