Consumers of both unleaded and diesel gasoline are getting some relief this week. According to GasBuddy, the average gas price is decreasing in most countries, including the Gem State.
GasBuddy says that on Monday, March 27, the average price of regular unleaded gas across the state was $3.57 per gallon. This is a 2.3-cent drop from last week.
GasBuddy found that the cheapest gas in the state was $3.00 and the most expensive was $4.59, a difference of $1.59 per gallon.
In Boise, however, the difference between the cheapest and most expensive gas is only 20 cents, which is a much smaller difference.
The average price in Boise has decreased by 3.1 cents over the past week to $3.71. The most expensive gallon of gas in the city costs $3.79. The least expensive gallon costs $3.59.
GasBuddy surveyed 216 gas stations in Boise and found that prices are, on average, 5.6 cents lower than one month ago and 83.3 cents lower than one year ago.

The price of diesel across the country has also gone down. Diesel prices have decreased by 5.9 cents per gallon, making the average price for a gallon of diesel $4.19.
Patrick De Haan, who is in charge of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy, said that prices have been stable for the past week.
“The national average price of gasoline has seen little overall change over the last week, with big decreases in states like Colorado and Ohio offset by large increases in Arizona and North Carolina. While more states saw declines than increases, any downward trends are still likely to be temporary and not necessarily long-lasting,” said De Haan.
“While Colorado’s refinery issues are largely moving into the rearview mirror, challenges making the transition to summer gasoline in Arizona are leading to tight supply and accelerating prices.”
De Haan predicts the general decline in cost will not remain so for long.
“Motorists in some areas may be receiving good news, while others may not as we hit the second half of refinery maintenance season. You never know what the closing moments will look like, and motorists could be in for a dramatic ride if issues develop,” said De Haan.
