Idaho drivers are finally beginning to see some relief at the pump now that the state’s average gas price is below the $5 mark and has been steadily falling for the past few weeks. But with crude oil still above $90 per barrel, a sudden increase in fuel demand or a disruption in the supply chain could quickly reverse the trend.
According to the American Automobile Association, Idaho’s average price for a gallon of regular is $4.91, which is 11 cents less than a week ago and 34 cents less than a month ago. Meanwhile, the national average currently sits at $4.21 per gallon, which is 14 cents less than a week ago and 63 cents less than a month ago.
Today, the Gem State ranks 7th in the country for most expensive fuel. California has the highest priced gas at $5.61, while Texas has the nation’s lowest average price at $3.71.
Motorists in Boise are paying Idaho’s highest average price at $5.00 per gallon. Lewiston has the state’s lowest price at $4.45.
