Motorists in Colorado should get ready to pay more at the pump after Suncor Energy announced this week it would shut down its Commerce City oil refinery for as long as three months due to equipment being damaged at the sprawling facility by last week's 'extreme and record-setting weather.' Grier Bailey, executive director of the Colorado Wyoming Petroleum Marketers Association and the Colorado Convenience Store Association, said 'prices will be abnormally high in the next six to eight weeks' in Colorado as the 35% to 40% of the state's gas and diesel market that is supplied by Suncor goes suddenly dry.
