Fort Collins Gas Prices Are Going Up

I commute from Fort Collins to Windsor every day for work.  It’s not that far, but I still find myself gassing up the car at least once every 10 days.  So it’s been pretty easy for me to notice the price of gas slowly rising.

According to the Coloradoan, the average price of gas in Fort Collins is $3.856, which makes id higher than the national average for the first time in years.  And it looks like prices are going to fluctuate as we head into Summertime.

(Wave Dreher, spokesman for AAA Colorado) expects to see prices “calm down” after Memorial Day and rise as July 4 approaches, cycling up and down again around Labor Day. If there’s any good news to rising prices, it’s that experts don’t expect the average cost of a gallon of gas to top $4. “Domestic production has been quite spectacular; that will moderate energy prices in the U.S. for the foreseeable future,” said John Elder, a professor of finance at CSU who recently wrote two studies on oil price volatility and economic growth.

Am I the only one who longs for those days in the late nineties when gas was 87 cents per gallon?  Of course, I was twelve years old back then, so I wouldn’t be able to take advantage of those prices anyway!
