Gas Reaches $4.00/Gallon – 1/9/2011

I don’t know if you’re aware or not, but regular unleaded gas has reached the $4.00/gallon mark in the Kailua-Kona area and Kahului, Maui!  Not that its a bargain in Honolulu @$3.45/gal. or Hilo @$3.65/gal., but its just a psychological barrier when it hits $4.00.

Of course, even on the mainland, gas prices have pushed pass the $3.00/gallon mark in many places.  With Washington continuing to spend their way out of this economic slowdown and printing money to cover it all, inflation will be a big issue in 2011.

Fortunately, with the exception of the Big Island, you really don’t have far to drive to get around in Hawaii.  While the typical driver on the mainland may drive three-to-five- hundred miles a week, the typical driver in Hawaii may only cover half that.

On the Big Island, things are a little more spread out, so they may average 300 miles or more a week.

At any rate, you should be prepared for these higher prices at the gas pump!
