What’s Up With Gas Prices? Find Cheaper Gas In The Treasure Valley
I'm sure you've noticed, like I have or more to the point, my wallet has, that gas prices have gone up pretty dramatically, recently. In fact, they've gone up on average over 50 cents in the last month from $2.49 per gallon to $2.99 per gallon. According to the story from The Idaho Statesman, AAA lists Idaho as the 10th highest gas prices in the nation. Are we in for higher prices? You bet! AAA is predicting more increases through Memorial weekend. What's causing the increase? Blame it on the usual seasonal shift in prices due to increased travel as well as refineries switching to something called "the summer blend". The only Summer blend i'm interested in, involves fruit and vodka!
