Dave Carslon with AAA-Idaho says refinery problems are to blame for the recent spike.
Carlson comments on the recent run-up in gas prices:
The US average price for a gallon of gasoline is currently $3.62, up a dime in the past month. Idaho’s average price of $3.79 ranks as the 11th-highest price in the nation.
Washington’s gas prices are the 7th-highest at $3.90 and Oregon’s average price is the 8th-highest at $3.88.
