So how's the economy effecting Hawaii? Jobs? Gas/airline prices? Real estate? I've read a few things but nothing much from a personal insider perspective.
Thanks!

Sorry-- I just love your icon!
Gas prices have gone down to about normal, though it will never be as cheap as the mainland. But the economy is affecting Hawaii pretty much the same; big and small businesses filing for bankruptcy and or going out of business. Lots of people looking for work, but are having a hard time of it. Airfare is expensive. Tourism is Hawaii's main economic resource, and with less people traveling paradise is becoming harder to afford. The only difference seems to be that Hawaii still doesn't have as many foreclosures.
