Hawaii, HI, September 11- Average retail gasoline prices in Hawaii have risen 2.7 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.34/g yesterday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 355 gas outlets in Hawaii. This compares with the national average that has increased 1.8 cents per gallon in the last week to $2.65/g, according to gasoline price website

According to GasBuddy historical data, gasoline prices on September 11 in Hawaii have ranged widely over the last five years:

Areas near Hawaii and their current gas price climate:

  • Alaska- $3.03/g, up 5.5 cents per gallon from last week’s $2.97/g.
  • Anchorage- $2.78/g, up 3.7 cents per gallon from last week’s $2.74/g.
  • Honolulu- $2.92/g, down 0.5 cents per gallon from last week’s $2.92/g.

“Harvey may be long gone, but his wrath continued to drive gasoline prices up in much of the country in the last week. However, the effects are finally starting to weaken as refineries return to production and fuel begins to flow once again from many Houston refineries,” said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy. “The national average gasoline price appears to have peaked last week Thursday at $2.67 per gallon and is beginning to slowly decline for the time being. Once again, motorists shouldn’t expect to see any impact from Irma on gasoline prices due to the path being a considerable distance from sensitive areas of the energy sector. With summer driving season now over, motorists stand to benefit from falling demand, which will help refineries bring gasoline inventories back to normal and thus gas prices, but as many Americans are now acutely aware, the impact on gas prices can outlive a storm, especially one like Harvey.”
