AAA: Gas prices drop statewide, double-digit drop in Hilo

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Retail gas prices fell throughout Hawaii, including by a dime a gallon in Hilo, over the past week, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch.

The Hawaii state average for regular unleaded dropped by 10 cents since last week to $4.31 per gallon which also was a dime less than last month and 14 cents higher than last year.

Honolulu's average price dropped to $4.23 a gallon for regular unleaded – nine cents less than last week,  12 cents less than last month and 18 cents higher than a year ago.

In Hilo, the average gas price is $4.36 a gallon, down 10 cents from last week, a nickel less than last month and four cents more than this time last year. 

Wailuku's average is $4.47 a gallon, eight cents less than last week, three cents less than last month and four cents higher than last year.

 "Price relief has come to the Aloha state," said AAA Hawaii Regional Manager Diane Peterson. "The states with $4 a gallon gas also experienced price declines: the state average in Hawaii dropped by a dime, the state average declined by 24 cents in California to $4.07 and the state average dipped by a nickel in Alaska to $4.20."
