Average retail gasoline prices in Honolulu have risen 1.6 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $4.30 per gallon Monday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 214 gas outlets in Honolulu. This compares with the national average that has fallen 1.9 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.61 per gallon, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.

Including the change in gas prices in Honolulu during the past week, prices were 15.6 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 0.3 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has decreased 10.3 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 28.1 cents.

Because there's no incentive to keep prices down. When there's demand, the price will continue to stay high. They need to get more hydrogen fuel cell cars and cars that run on natural gas is they want the prices to come down faster.

I would ditch my car for a bike if I thought the commute would be safe. But between poor road conditions and other driver's being unaware of bike riders it is highly risky.

The price of paradise excuse has long been overused as justification. Time for these guys and other retailers to prove it and open their books.
