Road repairs

On May 1 in Coeur d’Alene, I paid $2.27 cash price for regular and $2.45 for premium gas. In Boise it’s $2.89 or higher. I don’t understand the difference. Now I heard the raise in gas prices is to support road construction. With that in mind, in the last eight years or so, why were sections of the freeway between Broadway in Boise to Meridian Road torn up at least three times? If that’s the best planning for the freeway, then someone or something needs to go. Better planning for our roads is needed so we don’t have to tear out cement that’s only two years old to make changes that should have been done to begin with.
