In Honolulu, Thursday’s average price for regular unleaded is $3.66, which is up one cent from a week ago, 17 cents higher than last month, and 60 cents higher than the price on this date last year. The Hilo average gas price was $3.89, which is up one cent from last week, 15 cents higher than last month and 43 cents higher than on this date a year ago. 

“Price increases have slowed to a trickle this past week, reflecting a flattened oil price,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaiʻi general manager.  “This slowdown in local price increases matches what has occurred throughout most of the nation.”
