HONOLULU (KHNL) - A daughter's plea, lower gas prices and moped parking crackdowns top this week's most viewed stories on KHNL.com.


Number 3: Moped crackdown fuels citations

"I'd seen so many of them parked at the bike racks that I never really knew that mopeds weren't supposed to be there," said moped driver Mandy Jansen.

Confusion over where mopeds can or cannot park creates a parking problem.

Moped riders are thinking twice about parking at bike racks, in fear of ending up with a citation.

The City has placed new stickers on all bike racks to educate people about an ordinance, that took effect, less than two years ago. It bans mopeds from bike racks unless signs permit.


Number 2: Gas prices take a big dip

"I think I saved $6," said a driver Amy Stein.

Drivers are treated to lower gas prices. Dozens line up at the Iwilei Costco gas station, to take advantage of plummeting gas prices. Overnight a gallon of regular unleaded went from $3.97 to $3.84.


Number 1: Daughter of missing Waikiki woman makes tearful plea

"I really want my mother back," said Autumn Day said through tears. "It's just so hard."

The daughter of a Waikiki woman, who's been missing for about a month, pleads for the public's help in finding her mother.

47-year-old Kimberly Jacobs, vanished from her Waikiki apartment last month.

Despite extensive air and ground searches, there's still no sign of her.

And these are the Top 3 Stories on KHNL.com this week.
