Colorado's Average Gas Price Now $2.45 A Gallon, Setting Record

Denver (AP) Motorists who thought it was bad last week haven't seen anything yet, unless they've stopped to fuel up in the last couple of days. Fuel prices have hit another record high, not only in Colorado, but across the country as well.

The Lundberg Survey says the nationwide average has shot up 20 cents per gallon during the past three weeks to $2.53. The average in Colorado is now $2.45 a gallon, but in some areas, drivers will get a little bit of a break.

Fort Collins residents are paying an average of $2.30 a gallon, while $2.25 is the new average in Denver, but motorists will pay around $2.49 in Durango, $2.58 in Estes Park, and $2.61 a gallon in Vail.
