Honolulu's average price had a one-cent bump up from last week to $4.03 a gallon for regular unleaded – up 14 cents from last month and up 10 cents from a year ago.

In Hilo, the average gas price is $4.09 per gallon, the same price as last week, nine cents more than last month and 17 cents less than this time a year ago.
