In filled up this morning in Omaha Nebraska for @3.16 per gal. I average 42MPH on my 2002 Honda, standard shift. So sorry to hear about your prices. I bought a gallon of milk for $2.98 and thought it was high. Better stock up on rice because yesterday's news said that the price of rice will skyrocket in the world market.

why is the president and the congress not doing anything about the oil crisis? Why have we not heard from our state lesgislators? Where are the leaders of the democrat and republican parties? They need to bury their idealogical differances and get this country back on track.

Yes, gas over $4 a gallon is ridiculous but shouldn't be compared to the Mainland. Reason? Simple. A Mainland driver puts in many more miles daily because of the distances he must cover. In the Islands, a driver doesn't approach the mileage of Mainlanders.

Still gas prices on average are cheaper in Hawaii than California. Go figure since California has a set of refineries, one would expect gas prices to be cheaper. Nope, its called record profits for gas companies.

When the price of gasoline doubles to $8/gallon, I hope you have a good pair of walking shoes, a bicycle or a good mass transit system ready.

What do you suggest?

The countries that have the oil are setting a high price. Do you want us to invade those countries and take over those oil supplies.

There are more developing countries willing to pay more for oil and they use less oil than we do.

As a country we use more oil per person than any other country on earth.

As a state we could make greater use of geothermal power generation, solar, wind energy, nuclear power, etc, in order to decrease our dependence on oil but the protesters will complain about everything and shut thing down.

The superferry is more efficient at transporting people and cargo between the islands than the airlines yet people would rather take the airlines.

The people just have to change their way of thinking and not let the protesters and environmentalists rule their lives.

Besides the Hawaiian drivers have other alternatives: great bus system, Scooter friendly roads, great weather for walking or standing by the bus stop, riding the scooter, etc.

No. It's because of all the extra enviro restrictions and taxes in California.

All those "props" and "measures" of the past have accumulated to this result. So we ante up and pay for it.

Just filled up my SUV at Tesoro...$3.94 per gallon. As long as the price of dog food remains stable, I guess my sled dogs will be my most economical choice of transportation. I get about 60 miles to the gallon (of dog chow), depending on the temperature.

FYI, the same Tesoro refinery that supplies the majority of Hawaii is only 90 miles north of us... yet we pay more than most Hawaiians... supply and demand they say.

When fuel is this high we need to encourage job resources close to the needy. It doesn't surprise me that Lingle, Hee, Magoagay, Nakata, and Harbin have opposite views. Development is not good for the poor. It makes it to easy for them.

Actually, I was kind of sorry we turned Kuwait over after running iraq off. I saw this coming and they are not our friends.

What happens when there's no snow?

BTW, I think Tesoro, along with Chevron, has a refinery in Hawaii, so I doubt if the gas comes from the one in AK.

Acccording to an excerpt from a 10-K SEC Filing, filed by TESORO PETROLEUM CORP, "The Hawaii Refinery, located at Kapolei in an industrial park 22 miles west of Honolulu, was acquired by the Company in May 1998. The Hawaii Refinery's crude oil supply is sourced primarily from Alaska".

We use wheeled carts instead of sleds when the snow melts.
