That’s right! $3.99 gas on Maui at the brand-new Costco gas station: be still my beating heart. That was the price of gas at the Kahului Costco on Thursday when they opened for business for the first time. According to AAA as reported by the Maui News, prices on Maui the week before were an average of $4.54, but had already dropped to an average of $4.31 by Thursday’s opening.
What a little competition will do … and with their location directly outside the airport (and across from a new Marriott hotel), we predict long lines for those pumps. Luckily, they have the biggest fill-up station in the island.
The Kahului store is undergoing a massive renovation, likely to last for a few more months. But come early November, shoppers are promised all sorts of new goodies, including an expanded prepared food section, more fresh food, and an outdoor food court.
