Hawaii gas prices top $4 a gallon

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -  Gas prices rose throughout Hawaii over the last week, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. 

On Thursday, the statewide average for regular unleaded is $4.19 a gallon, seven cents more than a week ago. 

Honolulu's average price rose seven cents over the past week to $4.05 a gallon. That price is 17 cents more than a month ago and 42 cents higher than this time last year. 

In Hilo, the average gas price is $4.35 a gallon, up a nickel from last week, 15 cents more than last month and 58 cents higher than this time last year.

Wailuku's average is $4.41 a gallon, a penny more from last week, five cents more than last month and 40 cents higher than on this date last year.

Hawaii continues to have the highest gas prices in the U.S., followed by Alaska with a $3.86 state average and California at $3.78. 

"Shop for low gasoline prices to be sure you're getting the best price," according to AAA Hawaii Regional Manager Diane Peterson.  "But remember that traveling long distances to save a few cents wastes fuel and may cost you more money than you save. You can shop around without wasting gas by using online or smartphone resources like AAA.com/TripTik or the free AAA TripTik mobile app."
