Wyoming Gas Prices Higher Than National Average

Gas prices around the country have been falling in recent weeks. That's true for Wyoming as well -- but the state hasn't seen quite as big a drop as other places. Gas prices in Wyoming are averaging $3.27 a gallon right now according to analysis from gasbuddy.com. That's $.25 higher than the national average. Gas Buddy analyst Patrick De Haan says that shouldn’t be surprising.

“Gas stations in Wyoming tend to be more rural. They may not have gasoline volumes like other areas. And the changes because of that lag the national average.”

Wyoming’s lag means its gas prices are often higher than average in the fall, and lower than average in the winter. De Haan says Wyoming’s gas prices will probably begin to fall soon, and may not stop falling until February.
