“Prices on the West Coast remain the most expensive in the nation, with a half-dozen states on the list of most expensive markets: Hawaii, $3.07, California, $2.99, Washington, $2.84, Alaska, $2.81, Oregon, $2.68, and Nevada, $2.65,” said AAA Hawaii General Manager Liane Sumida. “Prices in most parts of the region have followed the national average of trending higher due to some mainland states experiencing refinery-related issues.”
