Gas Prices On The Rise

A late-year rally in oil prices has helped boost the national average price for regular grade gasoline nearly a dime in the past week alone. This week marks the first time that Idahoans will pay less, on average, than their national counterparts --going all the way back to January 26 of this year.

Oil moved higher late last week, and gas prices quickly followed suit. For the past ten months, Idahoans have paid an average monthly price of 15 cents more per gallon, but there have been points in time when Gem State motorists were paying as much as nearly 30 cents a gallon more.
