Idaho gas prices have fallen 30 cents in the past month. But they are eighth highest in the U.S., according to AAA Idaho.
The motorist group says Idaho’s average regular gas price Monday was $2.52 per gallon. The U.S. average was $2.31.
“Tight supplies equal higher pump prices in the Midwest,” AAA Idaho spokesman Dave Carlson said in a news release. “Meanwhile, Idahoans are getting some relief at the pump and a little less attention for an average pump price that had been approaching a 50-cent spread above the national average mark a month ago.”
AAA Idaho predicts that any regional price spikes will be lessened by “ample domestic supplies.”
The national average price could dip below $2 a gallon by the end of the year, the group said.
“For the moment, Idaho is in the peculiar position of having enjoyed among the largest price declines in that past month, but we’re still paying the eighth highest prices in the country,” Carlson said.
