“Gas prices in this state have remained relatively constant while other states have seen larger increases over the past few weeks,” said Liane Sumida, AAA Hawaii general manager. “It seems our state has reach a state of equilibrium relative to supply and demand. As the economy picks up, we would expect prices to increase, too.”
