MEDIA RELEASE

Hawaii, HI, June 26- Average retail gasoline prices in Hawaii have risen 3.1 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.26/g yesterday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 355 gas outlets in Hawaii. This compares with the national average that has fallen 2.6 cents per gallon in the last week to $2.25/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.

According to GasBuddy historical data, gasoline prices on June 26 in Hawaii have ranged widely over the last five years:
$2.78/g in 2016, $3.36/g in 2015, $4.34/g in 2014, $4.32/g in 2013 and $4.26/g in 2012.

Areas near Hawaii and their current gas price climate:

  • Alaska- $2.91/g, down 0.9 cents per gallon from last week’s $2.92/g.
  • Anchorage- $2.66/g, down 2.0 cents per gallon from last week’s $2.68/g.
  • Honolulu- $2.89/g, flat from last week’s $2.89/g.

“As motorists pack their cars in preparation for the July 4 holiday, gasoline prices continue their widespread drop, falling in all five states over the last week, as retail prices play catch up to the falling price of crude oil,” said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst at GasBuddy. “Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Illinois saw prices rise slightly due only to the fact that gas prices had fallen so significantly that stations in those areas were selling under their cost, prompting an adjustment. For the rest of the country, the downward momentum has continued and may do so again this week, so long as there’s no sudden reversal in the price of crude oil. It’s amazing we’re staring at some of the cheapest prices of the year as the holiday comes into view,” DeHaan said.
