Idaho Gas Prices Below National Average
BOISE, Idaho (KTVB) -- Idaho drivers are cheering as prices at the gas pump continue their free-fall. After months of having some of the highest prices in the country, gas prices in Idaho are now nine cents below than the national average.
Currently, the average price in Idaho for a gallon of regular unleaded is $2.12, according to AAA. That's just over a dollar less than this time a year ago. Prices have plummeted 82 cents per gallon over the last month. Many local stations are now boasting fuel for under two dollars a gallon.
