Gas prices remain steady

Hawaii gas prices continued to remain mostly stable over the past week, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch.

Today’s statewide average price is $3.30, 1 cent more than last Thursday, 1 cent higher than a month ago and 26 cents more than a year ago, according to GasPrices.AAA.com.

“Healthy refinery output and increased gasoline imports are contributing to high inventory volume, which has kept prices in the region mostly stable, according to a recent Energy Information Administration report,” said AAA Hawaii general manager, Liane Sumida.

In Lihue, the price for regular octane gasoline at Shell was $3.56 on Thursday, while the 76 station was charging $3.52. The cost was $3.67 for regular gas at the Waimea Shell and $3.56 at the Hanapepe Shell. At the Kalaheo 76 station, the cost was $3.52; and in Kilauea, regular gas was $3.58 at Shell. Texaco Gas Station in downtown Koloa was charging $3.56.

“With New Year’s resolutions still fresh, now is the time to find a great mechanic you can work with to get your vehicle in shape to maximize gas mileage, vehicle performance and safety,” Sumida said.

In Honolulu, the average price for regular is $3.13, 1 cent higher than last Thursday, 1 cent higher on this date a month ago, and 21 cents higher than last year at this time. The record high price for gasoline in Honolulu was $4.48, set on May 8, 2011.

The Hilo average price is $3.27, which is 28 cents higher than on this date a year ago. Wailuku’s average is $3.77, which is 35 cents higher than on this date a year ago.
