DENVER ” The price of regular unleaded gasoline is nearing record levels in Colorado while the price of diesel is at an all-time high.

Colorado AAA said the statewide average of a gallon of unleaded was $3.31 Friday. The record is $3.34, set last May.

The national average price reported Friday was $3.36 a gallon.

In downtown Aspen, regular unleaded was selling for $4.20 a gallon on Friday morning. The price for a gallon of super unleaded was $4.40.

The average price of $4 for diesel is a statewide record.

Eric Escudero of AAA says gas prices always rise leading up to Memorial Day weekend but the increases this year are about a month early.
