Gas prices hold steady

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

Thurday’s statewide average price was $3.11, which is the same price as a week ago, 3 cents more than on this date a month ago and 30 cents more than a year ago, according to GasPrices.AAA.com.

Gas was going for $3.32 for a gallon of regular unleaded in Lihue and $3.59 on the North Shore. Costco was charging less than $3 a gallon for regular unleaded.

In Honolulu, Thursday’s average price for regular was $2.93, unchanged from last Thursday, 2 cents higher than last month and 27 cents higher than last year. The Hilo average price was $3.13, which is unchanged from last Thursday, three cents higher than on this date last month and 42 cents higher than on this date a year ago. Wailuku’s average is $3.53, which is unchanged from last Thursday, the same price on this date a month ago, and 28 cents higher than on this date a year ago.

“Gas prices are increasing for a portion of the West Coast states but unlike regions east of the Mississippi, the West Coast region saw an increase in gasoline inventory by a moderate 750,000 barrels, likely (due) to decreased demand,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida.
