Michiana gas now more expensive than Honolulu


There's no other way to say it: this stinks.

Around 4:20 p.m. Wednesday, GasBuddy.com says the average price of gas in South Bend topped the average in Honolulu, Hawaii.

South Bend's average hit $4.25 a gallon as more stations in the area raised their prices. The average in Honolulu, which is generally among the top averages in the country, was $4.246.

South Bend's average has been among the top 5 for most of the day. At one point, the city's average was number 3 in the country. Except for Honolulu, all the cities in the top 10 are in the Great Lakes region.

Analysts blame the high prices on problems at several key refineries.

As of 4:20pm, these are the top 10 city averages on GasBuddy.com:

  1. Chicago - $4.390
  2. Kalamazoo, MI - $4.259
  3. Gary, IN - $4.251
