California has ended its reign as the US state with the most expensive gasoline, at least for now. That honor now goes to Hawaii, where the average pump price stands at $5.414 a gallon -- less than 2 pennies above California’s, according to data from auto club AAA. While the national average has fallen for 57 straight days after surging to a record in early June, the Golden State and Aloha State remain the only two places with prices above the $5 threshold.
