Molokai Man

The Pump Predicament

Molokai pays some of the highest prices for gasoline in the country – right now gas is $3.59 for regular. There are only 2 stations on the island and like everywhere in Hawaii (but Oahu) the gas has to travel here on a barge.

Consequently the price only changes once a month or so – it was more than $4 for the first 3 weeks I was here.

Some people think there’s something fishy going on, but it’s likely just a supply and demand deal and the fact that we live on an Island.

In any event – I wrote a story to see if I could uncover a vast conspiracy – or something like that.

Now don’t you feel better about how much you’re paying?
