  • STAR-ADVERTISER / MARCH 2014

    A customer pumped gasoline in March 2014 at a Tesoro gas station on the corner of Cooke and King streets in downtown Honolulu. “Hawaii ($2.60) leads the market with an average pump price that is 24 cents a gallon above second-place California ($2.36),”said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida.

Statewide average gas price in Hawaii was $2.60 today, down one cent from a week ago but still the highest in the nation, according to the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch.

The $2.60 average gas price is three cents less than last month and 41 cents less than a year ago, according to the AAA Fuel Gauge Report.

“Hawaii ($2.60) leads the market with an average pump price that is 24 cents a gallon above second-place California ($2.36),” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. “Regional neighbors Alaska ($2.25), Nevada ($2.05) and Washington ($2.03) round out the nation’s top five most expensive markets for retail gasoline. The nation’s least expensive markets for gas are Oklahoma ($1.42), Missouri ($1.46) and Kansas ($1.47), and motorists in 33 states are paying averages at or below $1.75 per gallon.”

In Honolulu, today’s average price is $2.41, which is two cents less than last week, five cents less than last month and 51 cents lower than last year. The Hilo average price is $2.55, down one cent from last Thursday, a penny lower than last month and 42 cents lower than on this date a year ago. Wailuku’s average is $3.12, one cent lower since last week, three cents less than last month and one cent more than at this time last year.
