Hawaii has many positive attributes -- the beaches, the luaus, the world-class surf -- but the inflated cost of living isnít one of them. The stateís remoteness means residents pay a premium for just about everything. Utilities in Honolulu run 67.6% above average; groceries, 58.1%; and transportation, 27.8%. More specifically: Gasoline costs 21% more than average, and a dozen eggs command 73% more. Housing expenses in the state capital are 2.5 times whatís typical for the rest of the U.S.
