(BOISE) – The price for a gallon of gas is still on the rise in Idaho. AAA officials report that crude oil prices topped over $113 per barrel Friday, the highest since Sept. 2008. Economists blame a weaker dollar and conflicts in the Middle-East and North Africa. East Idaho gas prices are relatively low however, nearly ten cents lower than the state average, and nearly 25 cents under the national average.
