Letter: Gas prices

Can someone please tell me what makes the Boise area so unique in the state that we are paying so much more for gas than the rest of the state? I have been all over the state lately and gas is cheaper everywhere except here. It is still $2.28 in Idaho Falls, is in the $2.40s in Ketchum, even West Yellowstone area is 20 cents cheaper than Boise. I have heard the excuse that we are remote, but many towns much more remote than Boise are cheaper. Also, how do we go from having the cheapest gas in the country a couple of months ago to being so far above the national average?
