Idaho gasoline prices vary by nearly 50 cents

BOISE, Idaho (AP) – Holiday motorists traveling around Idaho will see gasoline price differences by nearly 50 cents per gallon in cities across the state. This week’s AAA survey shows the best deal on petrol is in southeast Idaho, where prices are at $3.39 per gallon in Pocatello and a dime higher in Idaho Falls. The most expensive pump prices are in Ketchum/Hailey, where prices are at $3.87 per gallon. Prices in Boise are at $3.69, compared to $3.73 in Lewiston and $3.61 in Coeur d’Alene. AAA Idaho Spokesman Dave Carlson says geographic isolation, wholesale suppliers and local retail competition influence pricing and disparities between cities. Elsewhere, AAA reports the national average per-gallon price has dropped 44 cents since early May, compared to just a 13 cent decline in Idaho.
