Gas prices remained mostly flat across the state last week, with the average price of regular unleaded gasoline at $5.27 a gallon in Kahului, three cents lower than last month but 82 cents more than a year ago, according to the AAA Hawaiʻi Weekend Gas Watch.
The average regular unleaded gasoline price for Hawaiʻi is $5.21, which remained the same as last week. The national average price is $3.80, two cents higher than a week ago.
Current average price of regular unleaded gasoline: Honolulu – $5.18, Hilo – $5.05 and Līhuʻe – $5.54.
“We are two weeks away from Thanksgiving, one of the busiest holidays for road trips, and refinery attention has also shifted to diesel, which could affect local pump prices,” said Liane Sumida, general manager of AAA Hawaiʻi. “Hawaii is still the second most expensive state for gasoline behind California, where the current state average is $5.46.”
AAA Hawaiʻi reminds drivers that they can save money on gas by shopping virtually using a tool like the The AAA Mobile app, which shows users the cheapest gas prices nearby.
