In Grand Junction, Colorado, paying $3 for gas isn’t cheap, but compared to other places, it’s not too bad. Colorado generally has lower gas prices than many other states. That’s because refineries all over the country are making more gas as we head into the summer when more people travel. Right now, in Colorado, not as many people are driving because ski resorts are closing, and it’s not yet tourist season.

But when summer hits, more people will be hitting the road for vacations, hiking trips, and other fun stuff. That means more people will need gas, and prices will likely go up. Skylar McKinley from AAA says one reason for this is that in summer, gas stations switch to a special blend of gas that’s more expensive to make. This cost gets passed on to consumers, usually starting in early May.
