Idaho Made Another Top 10 List And It’s Not Good
Idaho and Boise specifically have made so many top 10 list in the last year it's impressive! These top 10 list include top 10 best places to live for millennials, Top 10 fastest growing city, Top 10 cities poised to make an economic recovery from COVID-19 and the list goes on and on. We've made another top 10 list and this one is not a good one... Idaho is on the top 10 list of highest gas prices in the United States. We are actually number 8. The only states that are worse than us are Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Utah, Alaska, Illinois, and Pennsylvania. According to ktvb's interview with AAA this is why prices will stay at these levels till fourth of July and then go up:
"The effects of COVID-19 are still being felt. Because fuel demand was held down during stay-home orders, stock levels are about 24 million barrels higher across the country than last year, including 500,000 barrels more in the Rockies region," says AAA Idaho spokesman Matthew Conde.
