HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii state officials say there are 7 percent more gas vehicles on the islands as of January than there were the same month one year ago.
The state Department of Business, Economic Development & Tourism said Monday that there were just over 1 million registered gasoline passenger vehicles in Hawaii. That's up from January 2012 and up slightly from December.
The department says in its monthly report that hybrid vehicles account for 1.3% of the total passenger vehicles on the islands.
Gas prices in January averaged $4.06 per gallon, about the same as January 2012.
The average was $4.47 in Kauai, $4 in Oahu, and $4.06 in Wailuku on Maui and Hilo on the Big Island.
The national average in January was $3.33 per gallon.
