We're just over two weeks from Christmas and gas prices, which have been on the slow decline, took a slightly more significant dip this week, and are now just six cents higher than the national average. It was just a few months ago when Wyoming's average gas price was 40 cents higher than the national average. We're on the right track it seems.
Slowly but surely, gas prices have been dipping for Wyoming. The national average also took a slight dip as well. However, the question remains, will gas prices take a big dip now that oil prices are beginning to take a stark drop off?
As Thanksgiving is now just a couple days away, there will be plenty of traveling happening throughout the holiday weekend. So how are gas prices as we approach such hefty traffic on the roads? A little bit better than previously.
In Wyoming, it's been awhile since we have gotten any sort of price break at the gas pump. While it has looked like it could be trending toward a decent price decrease over the past month, the national average gas price has been on the rise this week and that doesn't bode well for Wyoming's average price across the state to continue its recent trend.
As Labor Day Weekend approaches when many people will be traveling, a constant topic at the top of mind for all motorists is the price of gas, especially with such high prices in Wyoming. Meanwhile, about 1,400 miles away, Hurricane Ida has devastated New Orleans, LA, and in the storm's path were several oil refineries, some of which were forced to shutdown production.
