Exciting News

Ok, maybe this isn't so exciting for most of you, but for those of us here on Maui, this is AWESOME!!!!! Our gas prices FINALLY dropped below $4.00/gallon this week! It's been a LONG time since we've seen gas this low, so I just had to share!!! (and I heard on the radio this week that Lanai, which is part of Maui County is now below $5.00/gallon!!!). WOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOO!!This made it slightly less painful when I paid $4.99/lb for lettuce and $9.98 for a gallon of milk yesterday at the grocery store!!! (we're all HOPING that if the gas prices stay low, our groceries will start to go down a bit too)!!!!

WOW! That is alot for all of those but I am amazed at the MILK!! Here in Atlanta it's less than $4. Our gas has been up around the $4 mark as well but we have finally seen it drop below $2.50 at most places. Interesting to see how different it is in Hawaii.

$9.98 for MILK!!! (picking my jaw off the floor). I buy two gallons every three days!! We would be paying more for milk than gas! WOW, good luck with that!!!!

I totally understand your excitement we finally dropped $3 a gallon. How do you afford living there? I am in AZ and I must say we are pretty lucky because our cost of living is lower than a lot of other states. Then again so are our salaries so I guess it all balances out..lol. Good luck and hopefully you will continue to see those #s come down.

Our favorite station was $2.19 this morning. Most stations are up around $2.59, but far less than your $3.99. Guess that's the price of living in paradise, huh. Jackie in Oregon
