Colo. Gas Prices Climb, Bucking U.S. Trend

Gas prices in Colorado bucked the national trend last week, rising 4 cents per gallon to a state average price per gallon of $2.79. reports Colorado was one of just seven states where the price of gas rose last week. The state average is now 6 cents higher than the national average. Experts say prices here should begin to fall since crude oil prices have dropped almost $10 a barrel since the beginning of the month.

Some retailers in Fort Morgan in Northeast Colorado are selling a gallon of gas as low as $2.57-cents, while one retailer in Snowmass Village near Aspen has the highest price for a gallon of gas in the state, at $3.99.
