The cost of gas in Hawai´i is beginning to level off, according to a recently published report.

Honolulu gas prices went unchanged over the past week, averaging $3.87/g on Monday, June 21, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 214 stations in the area. Gas prices in Honolulu are 8 cents per gallon higher than a month ago and stand 95.6 cents per gallon higher than a year ago.

According to GasBuddy price reports, the cheapest station in Honolulu was priced at $3.33/g Monday while the most expensive was $4.06/g, a difference of 73.0 cents per gallon. The lowest price in the state Monday was $3.34/g while the highest was $4.59/g, a difference of $1.25/g.

The national average price of gasoline has fallen 2.1 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $3.05/g as of Monday. The national average is up 2 cents per gallon from a month ago and stands 93.5 cents per gallon higher than a year ago.

“The ferocious rise in gas prices has finally started to cool as gas prices have eased across a majority of the country for the first time in months,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “There have been some challenges in pockets across the country as demand remains very healthy, and stations in some areas where demand is very high struggle to keep up with demand thanks to the truck driver shortage.”
