USPS a way to Ship Cheaper to my State

I’m impressed with all my orders since Mainlanders considerered Hawaii is not part of the United States
specially Ebay sellers treated us as international Aliens. Multiple times my orders comes in
on Sunday which i didn’t expect for a flat rate 3days Priority box, I just recently bought item from NAM i expecting to ship USPS but rather seller used UPS without my knowledge costing him $105 for an 8 lb box ( as item shipped) whereas i ordered clutch kit weigh 32lbs for $30.00 for USPS and the clutch arrived 4 days earlier. I ordered transmission oil from ECS Tuning paid $64 fir shipping and they used FEDEX took almost 30 days to arrive and told me i choose the lowest shipping cost whereas i ordered 3gallons (15 quarts)Prime of MOLY engine oil from Amazon and arrived within a week via USPS...
FYI no offense to anyone.

Wow $105.00 to ship 8 pounds. Was that $105.00 US or $105.00 Hawaiian? What is the exchange rate.

I hope to hell you are being satirical. Or, like someone asked when I told them I was driving down to New Mexico if I had a passport...and really meant it.

Figured it was and just couldn't resist throwing a bit more at it. My example, though, actually happened, kinda like that question quoted on a cruise ship: "What time is the midnight buffet?".
