Honolulu's average price is $4.24 a gallon for regular unleaded, down three cents since last week, seven cents less than last month and down 20 cents from a year ago.

In Hilo, the average gas price is $4.34 per gallon, which is three cents less than last week, a penny less than last month and 39 cents less than this time a year ago.
