(BOISE, ID) – Idaho’s gas prices have stayed steady over the past week, but they’re still significantly higher than the national average. A survey of 802 Idaho gas stations put the state’s average at $3.76 per gallon. That compares to $3.50 per gallon nationally. Idaho’s prices are up 14.3 cents over this time last year, while the national average has dropped 13.6 cents compared to June of 2012. Experts say prices are under $3 in at least ten states, with a decline in the national average expected to continue over the next week.
