What is the best way to withdraw myself from an interview?

Currently at the ‘final stage of the interview ‘ according to the company which is a 3 day assignment due on Thursday. I’m very confident that I won’t get this position because my expected salary is higher that what the company is willing to give (something that came up in the previous stage. I’m surprised they wanted to continue with me).

I don’t want to settle for a lower amount with especially because this job is on site and I’d be effectively making less due to travel costs if I accept this job (current role is hybrid). So based on all of this what would be the most diplomatic way to withdraw my name? TIA
