“All states in the West Coast region, with the exception of Arizona, at $2.23, continue to lead the country with the most expensive gas prices:  Hawaii, $3.04, California, $2.90, Washington, $2.81, Alaska, $2.79, Oregon, $2.66 and Nevada, $2.62,” according to AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida.  “To get the most from their gasoline purchases, Hawaii drivers should consolidate errands, and follow their owner’s manual to maintain their vehicles. Regular maintenance supports better fuel economy.”
