HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii's average gas price is still way above the rest of the country, according to AAA.
But on Oahu, motorists are finding prices closer to the national average ($2.57 a gallon) than the state average ($1.71 a gallon).
At the Safeway in Ewa Beach, the price Monday was $1.95 per gallon.
"It feels terrific. I'm so happy," said driver Claire Loo Nakatsuka.
Added Ross Prizzia, "Yeah it's fantastic."
Costo Iwilei was not far behind at $2.05 per gallon.
According to AAA, the highest-recorded average in Honolulu was $4.48 a gallon back in 2012. That's a huge difference for commuters.
Doing the math, the average Ewa Beach resident who commutes to Honolulu five days a week is saving roughly $12 a week, or about $600 a year.
That's on the commute alone.
The picture is not as rosy on Molokai and Maui, where prices are still incredibly high.
It was $4.06 a gallon at one station in Kaunakakai on Monday, and in the mid-$3 range in Kahului.
Honolulu drivers say they're enjoying the low prices because they're not certain how long they'll last.
"I can afford to buy gas. I can afford to take my family out to dinner. Can do a lot of different things," said one motorist.
"Think when I buy my next car I'm going to get a gas guzzler so I can enjoy the low prices," added another.
