Average retail gasoline prices in Honolulu have risen 0.7 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $4.30 per gallon, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 214 gas outlets in Honolulu. 

This compares with the national average that has fallen 2.5 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.64 per gallon, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.

Including the change in gas prices in Honolulu during the past week, prices yesterday were 10.8 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 2.2 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has decreased 9.5 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 21.9 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.

0.7 cents means the increase was less than 1 cents, which is not worth writing an article!!! Did you mean to say 70 cents or $0.70?

If you think it's bad now, wait until Tesoro shuts down the refinery. I am not sure why, but there hasn't been much in the local media about this other than the 200 people losing their jobs. That is just part of the whole story. Without the refinery making gas and diesel locally, our gas pumps will run dry, cost will shoot skyhigh and your electric bill is in for a shock.

Price of oil goes up, price of gas goes up. Price of oil goes down, price of gas goes up!

It is significant if you compare our prices to the mainland, and their prices are falling while ours are rising. Add to that we have a mayor that wants to raise the price of gas by taxing it even more. If we don't draw the line, then the politicians will think that we aren't really all that concerned about it and raise the gas tax with impunity.

Yesterday, I paid $3.29/9 (at Costco) for regular gasoline (in New Jersey). I'd rather be in Hawaii.
