VAIL, Colo. (CBS4) – They’re here — $4 gas prices have come to Colorado.

The average cost of a gallon of unleaded was exactly $4 in Vail, the highest in the state, according to AAA Colorado.

“You don’t want to ignore it and you certainly wish the price of gas was lower, but we see more business coming up from Denver and from the Front Range,” said Antlers Resort spokesman Rob Levine.

Nationally, gas pump prices have climbed for the 34th straight day. The national average is now at $3.88.

The average price now tops $4 in six states and Washington, D.C.
