Hawaii has the most expensive gas in the country for the 12th consecutive week, and as noted above, Hawaii is the only state with an average price above $4 a gallon.

For the ninth week in a row, both Oregon and Washington remain out of the ten most expensive states, but California remains in the top five.  Hawaii is most expensive at $4.01, followed by New York at $3.75, Connecticut at $3.69, California at $3.61 (up four cents), and Alaska at $3.58.  Washington is 17th most expensive at $3.40 (up half a cent).  Oregon is 18th at $3.38 (up a penny).  Idaho is 47th at $2.98 (down 7 cents).  Utah has the cheapest gas in the nation at $2.90 a gallon (down a dime).

 Diesel prices are holding fairly steady.  The national average dips half a cent to $3.91 while Oregon’s average remains at $3.93.
