HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii gas price averages were mostly stable during the past week but still remain a $1 (or more) a gallon less expensive than a year ago heading into summer, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch.

The current Hawaii state average for a gallon of regular is $3.31, a penny more than last week, nine cents more than last month and $1.15 a gallon lower than a year ago.

Honolulu's average gas price increased slightly to $3.25, two cents more since last Thursday, 11 cents higher from last month and $1.09 a gallon less than a year ago.

In Hilo, the average gas price is $3.24 per gallon, a penny less than last week, a nickel more than last month and 94 cents less than this time a year ago.
