I saw a friend on Facebook post about how she got gas for below $3 per gallon, and she was pretty excited about it. Another friend posted that he got it for $2.85 somewhere in Coeur d’Alene. Although that’s not the state average, it seemed really low, so I started wondering, is that the cheapest gas in the country? Turns out, no it’s not. Utah has that claim to fame. KSL.com reports that the AAA of Utah lists the average price for regular, self-serve gas at $2.80 per gallon.
That’s down a cent from last month, but still 22 cents higher than this time last year. Wyoming comes in second with a statewide average of $2.91 a gallon. The national average for gas is $3.09 per gallon.
Hawaii has the highest prices in the country, at $3.69 per gallon.
