Colorado motorists who experience pain at the pump every time they fill up now have even more of a reason to fume about fuel prices.

Triple-A Colorado says gasoline prices statewide have broken their all-time record-high price for a gallon of regular unleaded.

The organization's fuel gauge report says motorists are paying an average of $3.126.

That's 29 cents more than two weeks ago, and 15 cents higher than last week.

Colorado Springs fairs a bit better, with prices averaging $3.09, while the average in Pueblo is $3.12.

Colorado is the eleventh most expensive state in the country for gas. Last week, the state ranked 15th.

This is the 14th consecutive week that the average price has climbed in Colorado.

The price has gone up steadily since January 31st, when a gallon cost two-dollars-nine-cents ($2.09).
