Gas Prices Fall in Wyoming, Nationally
Gasoline prices are trending down for the first time in a while.
Analysts with Gasbuddy.com say the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded in Wyoming slipped 1.4 cents last week to $3.60 per gallon.
Gasbuddy.com senior petroleum analyst Patrick Dehaan says reduced demand will continue to play a role as the summer driving season comes to a close.
“We can expect prices to begin declining in some areas of the country,” DeHaan said. “Most areas should see lower prices come the end of September, so we’re just a few weeks away from a gradual downturn.”
DeHaan says gas stations will steadily transition to the cheaper winter blend of gas next month.
Gas is selling for as low as $3.29 in Casper, $3.39 in Cheyenne and $3.43 in Laramie. DeHaan says the national average fell to $3.57 last week, down four-tenths of a penny.
