How Far Will Colorado Gas Prices Plummet?
According to the Denver Post, gas prices in Colorado and the nation continue to fall and filling your tank below two dollars a gallon could be in the foreseeable future.
While average gas prices across the nation are at $2.29/gallon, the average price in the Denver metro area (including Fort Collins) was $2.51. This comes from the latest information supplied by the GasBuddy website. This is a drop of almost eight cents in one week. This is also down almost over a dollar over the past year.
Colorado prices are down to $2.55 as an average.
The price drop is being attributed to stations switching to the winter gasoline which is much cheaper than the summer mix. Add in the low cost of a barrel of oil right now, it compounds to savings at the pumps for consumers.
Here are the lowest prices right now across the region, according to Gasbuddy:
