The price for unleaded regular gasoline in Wailuku fell 8 cents from last week to $4.39 a gallon, the AAA Hawaii Weekend Gas Watch reported Thursday.
That price was 13 cents less than last month and 4 cents lower than last year.
The Wailuku downward move conforms with the statewide trend with gas prices down 7 cents from last week to $4.24 cents per gallon. That was 11 cents less than last month and 8 cents lower than last year.
Honolulu's average price dropped to $4.17 a gallon for regular unleaded, 6 cents less than last week, 17 cents less than last month and 14 cents higher than a year ago.
In Hilo, the average gas price was $4.24 a gallon, down 12 cents from last week, 14 cents less than last month and 8 cents more than this time last year.
"Only two states in the country still have $4 a gallon-plus prices, Hawaii and Alaska," said AAA Hawaii Regional Manager Diane Peterson. "The Alaska state average is $4.09 a gallon. California prices have dropped below $4 a gallon and the Golden State's average dipped to $3.91."
