Hawaii’s tourism industry is hurting from the sudden closings of Aloha and ATA airlines last month along with a spike in airfares, pushed up by rising jet fuel prices and fewer flights.

I’m wondering, (and hoping), that the whole “supply and demand” theory will start to kick in and maybe actually lower some hotel and airfare prices… if you lower it, we will come!
