AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch: Prices Slip Again

From Hawaii AAA, February 18, 2016

Statewide gas prices declined slightly again over the past week, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. Today’s statewide average price is $2.60, one cent less than a week ago, three cents less than last month and 41 cents less than a year ago, according to the AAA Fuel Gauge Report.

In Honolulu, today’s average price is $2.41, which is two cents less than last week, five cents less than last month and 51 cents lower than last year.  The Hilo average price is $2.55, down one cent from last Thursday, a penny lower than last month and 42 cents lower than on this date a year ago.  Wailuku’s average is $3.12, one cent lower since last week, three cents less than last month and one cent more than at this time last year.

“Hawaii ($2.60) leads the market with an average pump price that is 24 cents a gallon above second-place California ($2.36),” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. “Regional neighbors Alaska ($2.25), Nevada ($2.05) and Washington ($2.03) round out the nation’s top five most expensive markets for retail gasoline. The nation’s least expensive markets for gas are Oklahoma ($1.42), Missouri ($1.46) and Kansas ($1.47), and motorists in 33 states are paying averages at or below $1.75 per gallon.”

Motorists can find current prices along their route with the free AAA Mobile app for iPhone, iPad and Android, available at AAA.com/mobile. The app also can be used by AAA members to map a trip, find discounts, book a hotel and access AAA roadside assistance.
