The Hawaii average state gas price inched up by a penny to $4.34 per gallon during the past week, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch.
The current price average is one cent less than last month and four cents higher than a year ago.
Honolulu’s average price stayed the same as last week at $4.31, and went down three cents from a month ago and 13 cents more than a year ago. In Hilo, the average gas price is $4.13 per gallon, up two cents from last week, the same price as last month ago and 18 cents less than this time a year ago. Wailuku’s average is $4.46 a gallon, the same price as last Thursday, a penny more than last month and six cents less than last year.
“Elevated oil prices have meant high pump prices for motorists on the mainland,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. “But we seemed to have escaped that impact, here. Now, oil prices have eased so hopefully Hawaii prices will begin declining soon since we usually get the effect of lower prices some weeks later.”
The average price of a gallon of regular gasoline as of July 10:
- Honolulu: $4.31 (No Change)
- Hilo: $4.13 (+2 cents)
- Wailuku: $4.46 (No Change)
