Jul 25th 2006 10:14PM Housing Boom..... sure is on Oahu, not sure about the other islands although I'm sure they are experiencing it as well. Try renting a studio for under $1000.00 a month. If people keep paying the high prices for homes on this island, then of course the prices will keep rising. And of course the more you buy the more people come here to live and then there's more traffic. Our roads are not equipped for it. I'm all for making a buck but at who's expense.
