LIHUE — Gas prices continue to fall in Hawaii.

Prices on Kauai on Friday ranged from $2.69 for a gallon of unleaded in Kapaa to $2.95 in Kilauea to $3.09 a gallon in Princeville and $2.88 a gallon in Lihue. Costco had the least expensive gas, running about $2.42 for a gallon of unleaded.

The statewide average price is $2.63, two cents less than last Thursday, 10 cents less than last month and 68 cents less than a year ago, according to the AAA Fuel Gauge Report.

“Nationwide, retail pump prices continue to drop due to falling oil prices and lower winter demand, but California ($2.71) remains the most expensive market for gas ahead of second-place Hawaii ($2.63),” according to AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. “Regional neighbors Nevada ($2.38), Alaska ($2.47) and Washington ($2.28) continue to round out the nation’s top five most expensive markets for retail gasoline.”

On the other end of the spectrum, Missouri ($1.58) and Oklahoma ($1.57) are the nation’s least expensive markets for retail gasoline, she added.

According to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. Honolulu’s average gas price is a dime less than last month and 69 cents less than this time last year.
