DENVER (KDVR) — Gas prices remain high across the country, including right here in Colorado. The national average for a gallon of regular fuel is $4.80.
In our state, the average remains higher at $4.89.
AAA said there has been a lower demand at the pump over the last two weeks but that could change with the arrival of the summer driving season.
“Domestic gasoline demand dipped recently, which took some of the pressure off of pump prices. About 80% of stations are now selling regular for under $5 a gallon,” said Andrew Gross, AAA spokesperson. “But July is typically the heaviest month for demand as more Americans hit the road, so this trend of easing prices could be short-lived.”
