We recently told you about the ten most expensive Colorado cities to rent a two-bedroom apartment, based on new data from ApartmentList.com.

The site also crunched the numbers to determine where in Colorado rent costs are going up the fastest on a year-to-year basis — and there are definite differences between one list and the other.

Several places that aren't among the ten most expensive places to rent appear below — although if costs keep heading upward at the rate they are currently, that could change.

In addition, Colorado Springs slipped into the biggest-rent-increase roster. The other nine selections are clustered around the Denver-Boulder area.

Count down the photo-illustrated top ten below, complete with ApartmentList.com data and an occasional note with extra info. That's followed by a graphic showing that rent prices in Colorado as a whole continue to exceed the national average — by a lot.

No surprise there. For more information about rents in Colorado, click here.
