When my mom was visiting from Northeast Ohio a few weeks ago, the one thing that absolutely amazed her about Idaho was how high our gas prices are. It's such a necessity that I didn't really think about it until she said something!

A few years ago, I bought a Mazda 3 from Team Mazda and it was one of the best decisions I ever made.  The gas milage its incredible so I only have to fill up my tank about once a month.  I'll typically spend between $27-$29 for a fill up, so I can't even imagine what you're spending if you're a mom driving an SUV full of kiddos or a dad that's driving a truck big enough to haul this year's Christmas tree home!

That said, I'm here to save you some money! According to GasBuddy, the average gas price in Boise is $2.26, but there are several stations around the area that have gas under $2! The Costco stations in Boise and Nampa, plus the Sinclair at Ave D and W 3rd in Kuna has regular for $1.95 a gallon. Most Fred Meyer stations in Boise, Nampa and Meridian were are just a bit higher at $1.99 a gallon.
