Colorado gas prices decrease 5 cents in week

Average retail gasoline prices in Colorado have fallen 5.5 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.28 per gallon at the start of the week, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 2,158 gas outlets in Colorado.

That compares with the national average, which has fallen 5.4 cents per gallon in the past week to $2.26 per gallon, according to gasoline price website gasbuddy.com.

Including the change in gas prices in Colorado during the past week, prices Wednesday were 87.5 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 28.1 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 3.7 cents per gallon during the past month and stands 84.5 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.

"Falling gasoline prices have been the name of the game after a brief hiatus," Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for gasbuddy.com, said in a statement. "Forty-nine of the nation's 50 states saw gasoline prices falling an average of six cents a gallon during the last week, while the Midwest, previously hit with price spikes, saw among the biggest declines as some refiners returned from maintenance, easing supply concerns. Oil prices also took a break after seeing the largest weekly increase since 2009 to post a big decrease last week."
