Gas Prices

Paia, originally uploaded by Sage Kitamorn.

In July of 2004, Stephen and I took a trip to Maui Hawaii. I snapped this photo to remind myself of the outrageous gas prices that Hawaiians had to pay.

If you can’t read the sign, regular gas is $2.65.

Where we came from in Texas, we were used to paying $1.79.

Both of those seem pretty cheap now that we’re paying $4.30 up in Seattle.  (Actually, now we all have nicer cars which need premium gas … so we’re actually paying about $4.53.)
