Gas Prices Climbing in Wyoming, Nationwide

Average gasoline prices in Wyoming continue to climb.

That’s what analysts with GasBuddy.com say after surveying nearly 500 gas stations throughout the state last week.

GasBuddy.com senior petroleum analyst Patrick DeHaan says the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded in Wyoming increased by about two cents last week to $3.60 per gallon.

“That’s much smaller than the national average which has increased about 12 cents per gallon last week (to $3.62 per gallon),” DeHaan said. “Oil prices remain very close to their highest levels in over a year, and that’s putting upward pressure on gas prices nationwide.”

DeHaan says additional factors pushing prices upward.

“Demand is at its highest, and that may limit how far prices decline, if they do at all,” DeHaan said. “Crude oil inventories have been on the decline for two consecutive weeks, and the uprising in Egypt is remaining a factor.”

“And, it’s soon to be hurricane season, and that could mean some impact,” DeHaan said.

$3.39 is the lowest price for a gallon of regular unleaded in Casper, Cheyenne and Laramie.
