BOISE – (March 13, 2023) – With St. Patrick’s Day fast approaching, Idaho drivers may have a tough time finding good luck at the pump.

According to AAA, Idaho’s average price for a gallon of regular gasoline is $3.67, which is two cents more than a week ago and the same price as a month ago.  Meanwhile, the U.S. average currently sits at $3.47, which is six cents more than a week ago and five cents more than a month ago.

Today, the Gem State ranks 10th in the country for most expensive fuel behind California ($4.92), Hawaii ($4.84), Nevada ($4.33), Washington ($4.25), Arizona ($3.95), Colorado ($3.91), Oregon ($3.91), Utah ($3.86), and Alaska ($3.80).  Today’s cheapest fuel can be found in Mississippi ($3.02), with no states currently below the $3 mark.

“With the anticipated surge of spring break travel and the return of expensive summer-blend gasoline, we could be just weeks away from $4 gas in some parts of our state,” says AAA Idaho public affairs director Matthew Conde.  “But if there is a silver lining, it would be that today’s pump prices are still about 70 cents cheaper than a year ago, which at least provides a little breathing room for those who are planning a Spring Break road trip.”
