CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming’s unemployment rate decreased slightly to 5.2 percent in May, from 5.3 percent in April.

The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services says the May jobless rate was considerably lower than the May 2011 level of 6 percent and the current U.S. rate of 8.2 percent.

The largest over-the-month unemployment rate decreases occurred in the northwest area of the state. Teton County’s unemployment rate fell from 11.4 percent in April to 8.7 percent in May. Lincoln County’s rate fell from 8.5 percent to 7.1 percent. And Park County’s rate fell from 6.1 percent to 5.2 percent.
