Price war makes Firestone intersection the cheapest gas in Colorado

Four gas stations in one intersection in Firestone are all competing to sell cheaper gas than the others 

There are only a handful of stations in Colorado selling gas cheap. Most of them are on an exit off I-25 in northern Colorado.

The Phillips66 sign in Firestone advertise something you won’t find anywhere else – gas for $3.43 a gallon. The state average is $4.78 according to AAA.

Across the street it’s Quiktrip for $3.53. Circle K has the same deal. Big spenders can head over to 7-Eleven and splurge for $3.87 a gallon 

But why Firestone?

The increased competition is forcing everyone to compete. When one goes low, the others go lower.

A price war off the side of the highway.

Gas stations can set their own prices, though it usually is based on how much the wholesale distributor is charging. Some competing gas stations can buy from the same distributor which can also drive down prices in localized areas.
