Gas prices skyrocketing in Hawaii and nationwide as oil costs soar
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Gas prices are skyrocketing in Hawaii and nationwide.
Experts say higher oil prices are pushing up the price at the pump.
According to AAA, the average price for a gallon of regular in Hawaii is currently $4.71. Some gas stations are selling for 10-cents more than that.
Experts also say the nationwide prices are bucking historical trends.
Gas prices typically drop after Labor Day, at the end of the summer driving season on the continent, but that’s not the case this September.
Gas prices rose to $3.88 per gallon on Monday, according to AAA.
Prices are the highest they’ve been so far this year nationwide.
