The average price for regular gas in Hilo is $3.456, up slightly from last week’s price of $3.404, up from last month’s price of $3.341 and down from last year’s price of $3.534, according to AAA.

At an average of $3.35 per gallon statewide, Hawai‘i remains the costliest state in which to drive, edging out California at $3.34 per gallon on March 18, 2019.

At $2.54, the national gas price average is 7 cents more expensive on the week and 23-cents more than last month. However, today’s price is just as expensive as the same day a year ago. In fact, for the first time since the end of November last year, the national gas price average the past four days was identical or a penny more expensive year-over-year.
