Gas prices rise to 2010 high point

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Gasoline prices increased throughout most of the Islands this week in response to spikes in crude oil and wholesale gasoline prices, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch.

Today, the statewide average rose to a new high level for 2010 at $3.63 a gallon - four cents higher than last week.

Today's average price in Honolulu is $3.50 per gallon for regular unleaded, a new high point for the year and four cents more than last week, 12 cents more than a month ago and 29 cents higher than this time last year.

In Hilo, the average gas price is $3.62 a gallon, five cents more than last week, 15 cents more than last month and 31 cents more than this time last year.

The average price in Wailuku is $3.98 a gallon, the same as last week, two cents more than last month and 32 cents more than last year.

 "Higher crude oil prices this week have pushed pump prices in Hawaii to new levels from last week," said AAA Hawaii Regional Manager Diane Peterson. "AAA Hawaii continues to advise motorists to cut gasoline use by consolidating errands, adopting a 'gentle' driving style, and properly inflating their tires."
