Hawaiʻi gas prices continued their stable pattern as oil prices dropped back to their lowest levels in a month following no further military action to date between the US and Iran, according to the AAA Hawaiʻi Weekend Gas Watch.

Today’s statewide average price is $3.66 a gallon, which is the same as last week, also the same as a month ago and 38 cents higher than on this date a year ago, according to GasPrices.AAA.com.

  • In Kahului, the average price is $3.84, which is the same as last Thursday, also the same as a month ago and 19 cents higher than on this date a year ago.
  • Līhuʻe’s average price for regular is $3.89, which is the same as last Thursday, two cents higher than last month and 36 cents higher than a year ago today.
  • In Honolulu, today’s average price for regular is $3.53, which is the same price as last week, also the same as a month ago and 42 cents higher than on this date last year.
  • The Hilo average price is $3.78, which is two cents higher than a week ago, two cents higher than on this date last month and 48 cents higher than on this date a year ago.
