The average price for a gallon of regular gas in Idaho is $3.71. Which is 32 cents over the national average.
Recently a viewer traveling to Shoshone noticed prices were more than 40 cents cheaper than Boise. A spokesperson for AAA said some of that has to deal with a difference in the gas itself.
"They allow for a lower octane gasoline that is blended for higher elevations," said Dave Carlson of AAA Idaho. "So they don't need to go to a more expensive gas. Cheaper to produce the gas, and cheaper to get it into those markets."
Carlson also says Shoshone has only a few gas stations which are liking in a price war to try and attract customers.
Residents say they are shocked by the prices which are still high for this time of year. Even though they're slightly slower than a year ago today.
Gas prices are expected to drop as companies switch to winter blends which are cheaper to produce.
