I was listening to NPR a few days ago and the commentator seemed alarmed at the high gas prices sweeping the nation just as I was passing a gas station advertising $2.89 a gallon. Sometimes I think that news commentators forget that there are a few states in between the coasts and ” sweeping the nation” just means that the northeast and California are experiencing at least $4.00 a gallon.
According to today’s article in the Coloradoan, AAA is showing Fort Collin’s average price of gas as $3.09 per gallon because we get most of our crude oil from Canada and South Dakota. Gregg Laskoski, senior petroleum analyst for www.GasBuddy.com, says that Colorado is in a position that invites envy from most other states.
“It’s a safe assumption that Colorado will enjoy some relative insulation from the national trend.”
Sounds like our real estate market. Somewhat insulated from the highs and lows of the rest of the nation. Sometimes boring can be good. Like so many days of sun….now to head out for a walk with my dogs in that damnable sun.
