Gas. Ain't. Cheap. 

I don't know about you, but I find myself filling up my tank at least twice a week (given, I try my best to fill up once I hit the half-filled mark... can't be running on empty.)

Look, I guess there really is no monetary difference between filling up my gas tank twice a week at $35 a pop, versus filing up once a week at $70+ dollars - but either way, that's still way more than I'd like to be spending.

How Much Is Gas These Days?

Like I said, not cheap.

According to AAA, the national average price for gas as of today (Nov. 4) stands at $3.41.

In Colorado, the average price for gas is going for even more than that; today, Colorado's average gas price stands at $3.51.

Surprised? Of course you're not.

What's crazy to think is that it was only 6 months ago that the national average price for gas had surpassed $3 for the first time since 2014 - that means, in the last 6 months, the national average price for gas has gone up, give or take, 40 cents. 

In Colorado, the average gas price has gone up more than a dollar in the last 12 months; at this time last year, gas in Colorado cost an average of $2.19 per gallon, according to AAA.

How You Can Save

Yes, the average price for gas in Colorado might be going for over $3.50 these days, but that doesn't mean you actually need to be paying that much.

In fact, you can be paying less than $3 per gallon right now at several Colorado gas stations, including multiple gas stations right here in NoCo.

The best part is, you don't even need to do any research because I've done it all; if you'd like to save at the pump next time you fill your gas tank up (let's be real, who wouldn't want to save some money), simply read on.

The cheapest gas you'll find in Colorado today is in Littleton; multiple gas stations in Littleton have gas for $2.89 a gallon, including:

  • Mobil, 6515 S. Broadway, Littleton - $2.89 per gallon
  • Exxon, 6556 S. Broadway, Littleton - $2.89 per gallon
  • Murphy Express, 181 W. Littleton Blvd., Littleton - $2.89 per gallon

Of course, there are many other gas stations in Northern Colorado/statewide... they're just not all going to help you save - and filling up your car with gas shouldn't break the bank.
