DENVER (AP) – Holiday travelers in Colorado and Wyoming are paying the lowest gas prices in the nation.
AAA’s Daily Fuel Gauge Report says that drivers in Colorado are paying an average of $2.74 a gallon of regular gasoline, the lowest in the nation.
Drivers in Wyoming are paying the second-lowest average price at $2.79 for regular.
The national average is $2.98 and drivers in many other states are paying at least $3 a gallon. Analysts don’t expect any relief soon because crude oil has hovered between $83 and $89 a barrel since Thanksgiving.
