Gas Prices Trending Downward Despite High Crude Prices
Petroleum analysts with Gasbuddy.com say gas prices in the Cowboy State remain higher than average but are beginning to trend downward.
Gasbuddy.com chief oil analyst Tom Kloza says the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded in Wyoming dipped two cents this week to $3.53.
Kloza says, despite crude oil selling for triple-digit figures, gas prices will continue to fall with demand.
“We use about nine million barrels of gasoline a day in July and August, and maybe a little a more than that,” Kloza said. “After Labor Day, it falls off pretty regularly by about 400,000 barrels a day, and we’re seeing that.”
Gas is selling for as low as $3.29 in Casper, $3.39 in Cheyenne and $3.38 in Laramie. The national average is $3.49.
