Gas Prices Climb Marginally in Wyoming, Decline Nationally

The average price for a gallon of gas in Wyoming climbed marginally last week compared to figures from a week ago.

Patrick DeHaan with Gasbuddy.com says the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded in Wyoming went up by less than a penny last week to $3.61 per gallon.

DeHaan says oil prices are coming off near-record highs, allowing for some relief at the pump.

“Oil prices have given up some of their recent gains,” DeHaan said. “Prices back about a week ago were about $108 per barrel, but they have dropped to $104.50.”

The national average fell nearly three cents last week to $3.65 per gallon.

DeHaan says he’s keeping an eye on the Gulf Coast. He says future instability this summer will likely stem from the remainder of the hurricane season.

“As we enter the peak of the hurricane season, there certainly is the possibility that any storm that enters the Gulf of Mexico could cause a disruption, and thus, may have an upward impact on gas prices,” DeHaan said. “That remains one of the largest concerns we have yet to go.”

Gas is selling for as low as $3.42 in Casper and Laramie and $3.38 in Cheyenne.
