Idaho drivers continue to see savings at the pump as economic fears drive down the cost of crude oil.
Matthew Conde with AAA Idaho says, “as long as the market is worried about the current banking climate and the possibility of a global recession, crude prices could continue to experience downward pressure that translates to lower pump prices, despite Spring Break travel.”
As of this morning, the average price for a gallon of regular in the Gem State is $3.62, which is five cents less than a week ago, seven cents less than a month ago, and 74 cents less than a year ago.
Meanwhile, the national average currently sits at $3.44, which is three cents less than a week ago, seven cents less than a month ago, and 82 cents less than a year ago.
Idaho currently ranks 11th in the country for most expensive fuel.
California, Hawaii and Nevada top the list of most expensive fuel with prices well over 4 bucks a gallon. At $2.98 per gallon, today’s cheapest fuel can be found in Oklahoma.
