Gas prices continue to rise in Idaho

How much are you willing to keep paying for gas, before you decide not to start the car? It’s a question many people have been asking themselves.

After 20-cent and 18-cent jumps in the last two weeks, soaring Idaho gas prices slowed this week, while the national average reversed course – at least temporarily.

AAA says that the current average price for regular in the Gem State is $5.17 per gallon, which is seven cents more than a week ago and 57 cents more than a month ago.

Meanwhile, the U.S. average is $4.98, which is three cents less than a week ago and 39 cents more than a month ago.
