Gas Prices

People who think gasoline prices in Colorado are unusually high now have some official confirmation. Colorado Triple-A is reporting record-high prices for this time of year across the state, and they aren't expected to come down any time soon.

Tight supplies caused by a pipeline rupture in Arizona, refinery shutdowns and low inventories are contributing to the high prices.

Colorado's average for regular unleaded rose four-point-eight cents to a dollar-68 per gallon. That eclipses the old record for this time of year -- set in 2001 -- by three cents per gallon.

Colorado Triple-A spokeswoman Mary Greer says Colorado's supply was affected by the pipeline problems in Arizona because Colorado is served by the same hub.
