Gas Prices Down From Highs After Katrina

Denver (AP) Good news for Colorado drivers. Statewide gasoline prices have fallen 75 cents per gallon from the highs seen after Hurricane Katrina. Experts say they could dip below $2 per gallon for unleaded in coming weeks.

AAA says average prices statewide hit a record $3.07 a gallon on September seventh, but the average Monday was $2.31 a gallon.

Roy Turner of the Colorado Wyoming Petroleum Marketers
Association, which represents half of the state's gasoline
dealers, says prices could fall below $2.00 a gallon if crude prices drop and normal weather holds.
