Gas Prices Dropping Nationwide


Your eyes aren't deceiving you if the numbers at the pump look a little lower.

Gas prices are down for the second week in a row.

Unfortunately, prices in the state of Colorado aren't decreasing as fast as they are elsewhere. While gas prices in Colorado dropped by 2 cents last week, the national average dropped by five, a 10 cent drop over the last two weeks. Thirty-two states have lower average prices than Colorado.

The state average is $3.84, 3 cents higher than the national average.

Experts say easing the tension in Iran is helping to push gas prices down.

The trend is one economists hope will stick as the economy struggles to get back on its feet: experts say $5 a gallon gas is the biggest threat of the country dipping into another recession.

      It shouldn't have gotten below $2/gal anyway. Sorry to disappoint.

    @J. Apparently you have no idea of how much manipulation is done from Washington.... I have been watching and complaining about it for decades. This administration is the worst I've seen so far.

    It will be interesting to see how far the prices drop between now and November... Then if Obama does get back in office (Heaven forbid), how fast they will "Necessarily skyrocket" again.

      I knew it wouldn't be long before someone blamed the president for high gas prices. Anyone ever hear of "supply and demand"? You would have if you had attending school --- ever.

    Just remember we climbed high last, so we are going to fall last. About a month ago we were lower then most states and right now we are higher. And for Memorial Day, gas prices will rise again.

    Does this mean that they won't increase in time for the Memorial Day weekend?

      Highly doubtful. Gas prices in the Springs aren't dropping.
