Gas is Cheaper in Hawaii

Sort of.  Check me out...

For as far back as I can remember, gas prices for various grades were structured 10¢ apart.  A gallon of mid-grade was 10¢ more than regular, and premium was 10¢ more than mid, so the total spread between grades was 20¢.  Hawaii seems to still follow this pricing structure, but in my state the spread between grades is as much as 75¢/gal.

According to, premium unleaded is going for $2.84 in my neighborhood, and the price in Hawaii is $2.61

Otherwise, yes,  HI pays 32¢/gal more for regular... which I never use.

Notice to Parents:

8th grade "graduation" is not a thing.

You don't graduate from 8th grade any more than you graduate from 9th grade.  You may graduate once you have completed your basic education.

Thank you.
