HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Hawaii state gas price average declined by two cents from last week to show a decrease for the first time in three months, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch. 

The $4.36 state average is two cents less than last Thursday, two cents more than last month and two cents more than on this day last year.

Honolulu's average price remained steady at $4.34 a gallon for regular unleaded – unchanged for two weeks, eight cents more than last month and nine cents more than a year ago.

In Hilo, the average gas price is $4.20 per gallon, up two cents from last week, a nickel more than last month and 12 cents less than this time a year ago. 

Wailuku's average is $4.45 a gallon, two cents less than last Thursday, four cents more than last month and seven cents less than on this day last year. 

"Some average gas prices are finally beginning to decline around the Aloha State," said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida.  "But drivers should continue to make sure their vehicle maintenance is up to date, and also consolidate their errands to obtain the best gas mileage possible," she added.
