AAA: Idaho gas prices at least 20 cents a gallon higher than average

Here's a news item from The Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The spokesman for AAA Idaho says the reason a gallon of gas in the state has been at least 20 cents higher than the national average for most of the spring is because refineries in Utah aren't producing enough to meet demand in the two states. Dave Carlson says lawmakers in Utah should ask refineries why more isn't being produced. AAA reports that the national average cost for a gallon of regular gasoline on Friday was $2.749. The cost in Idaho is $3.023, and in Utah $3.055. Carlson told the Idaho Statesman that Idaho is an isolated market and that's part of the reason for the higher prices. He predicts gas prices will fall in the next 30 days.
