DENVER (KDVR) — If you need to head to the pump to fill up your car on Monday, the cost is even lower than last week.

However, gas prices could be on the way back up, according to AAA.

“Oil prices finally crested and have now settled above the $70 per barrel mark after weeks of hovering just below it,” said Andrew Gross, AAA spokesperson. “Gas demand is very robust. These two factors will cause drivers to see prices increase for now.”
