HONOLULU (KHNL) -- Boost Mobile helped take the sting out of the record gas prices Tuesday morning.

The wireless service gave away free gas to residents at Lex Brodies gas station in Honolulu.

Hundreds of cars clogged traffic.

The first driver was there at 4:30 a.m.

Many people waited for over an hour for the free gas as some cars filled up with over $75 worth of gas.

Boost Mobile gave away 4000 gallons of gasoline.

Local Pro Surfers Sunny Garcia and Makua Rothman were the celebrity gas station attendants.

"We're out here for Boost Mobile promoting their 35 Unlimited Talk & Calling program and benefiting the Boy's & Girl's Club of Honolulu," said Garcia.  "It's a great company so we're trying to help promote it."

Drivers were asked to donate money to the Boys & Girls Club in return for the free gas.

Boost Mobile was able to raise over $1700 for the Boys & Girls Club and will match the total donations raised for the organization.
