Idaho Gas Prices Now Highest In Lower 48 States

Posted: Updated:
Idaho - BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Data released this week shows Idaho motorists are paying more for a gallon of gas - before taxes are factored in - than any other driver in the lower 48 states.
    
The high cost of petrol in the Gem State is hardly a new development.
    
In fact, AAA Idaho reports that average gasoline prices in the state have consistently exceeded the national average since May.
    
The Idaho Statesman reports (http://bit.ly/1695koP ) that one reason may be the higher profit margins among retailers. Brett DeLange of the Idaho Attorney General's Consumer Protection Division says profit margins at Treasure Valley retailers are exceeding 30 cents per gallon.
    
AAA's Fuel Gauge showed a state average price of $3.57 for regular, higher than the national average of $3.32.
