DENVER (KDVR) — Memorial Day weekend is right around the corner and that means many people will be hitting the road to kick off the summer travel season.
Over the last week, gas prices are staying mostly neutral. The average price for a gallon of regular fuel in Colorado is $3.35, which is the exact same as last week, according to AAA.
Here’s a look at how gas prices compare over time:
|Week Ago Avg.||$3.351||$3.704||$3.993||$3.992|
|Month Ago Avg.||$3.564||$3.920||$4.212||$4.141|

The national average for a gallon of regular fuel is at $3.54, which is up one cent since last week.
“Despite mild weather and a less volatile economic forecast, drivers are not hitting the road and raising gasoline demand to traditional seasonal levels,” said Andrew Gross, AAA spokesperson. “It’s possible this is merely the lull before Memorial Day, but it could be a trend that lingers into summer. Stay Tuned.”
