BOISE — Idaho gas prices are currently below the national average, even as both prices went up in the last week.

Today, the U.S. average is $1.85, which is two cents less than a month ago and $1.02 less than a year ago. Meanwhile, Idahoans are currently paying $1.81 per gallon, which is 26 cents less than a month ago and $1.32 less than a year ago.

Currently, 40 states have average prices under $2 per gallon.

The Gem State normally falls between 7th and 9th place in the nation for most expensive fuel, but thanks to dramatic price increases in other parts of the country, Idaho currently ranks 25th.
