BOISE, Idaho — Idaho's average gas price remains steady at $4.15 per gallon, down half a penny from last week, according to information from AAA. This comes when crude oil prices rise to a 10-month high, driving gas prices up and affecting areas across the U.S.
"Idaho gas prices aren't climbing right now. But with the price of fill-ups increasing in other parts of the country, the seasonal savings that usually come after Labor Day, are nowhere in sight," said AAA Idaho Public Affairs Director Matthew Conde in a news release. "It feels like we've been marooned on a desert island, but unlike Gilligan's Island, nobody's laughing."
The national average price of gasoline has increased to $3.88 a gallon, rising by 4.6 cents over the last week, according to AAA.
The average price for a gallon of gas in Boise has dipped 0.3 cents, making it $4.13, according to information from GasBuddy. They also show prices in Boise varied, ranging from $3.95 to $4.59 a gallon, a difference of 64 cents. Gas prices in Boise have decreased by 0.8 cents per gallon compared to last month and are now 31.8 cents per gallon cheaper than a year ago.
Idaho currently has the 10th most expensive gas in the country.
