COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- Colorado Springs and Grand Junction have a ways to go before getting back jobs that were lost due to the recession.

Published Reports say the Colorado Springs area has recovered about two-thirds of the nearly 14,000 jobs it lost during the recession. It cites a Bureau of Labor Statistics report as saying the area has 4,800 fewer jobs than in May 2008.

The Grand Junction area has recovered just a quarter of the 7,000 jobs it lost during the recession. It has 5,100 fewer jobs than in May 2008.

The report says every other metropolitan area in Colorado has recovered what it lost.
