Wyoming Gas Prices Still Trending Downward

Anthony Pollreisz, K2 Radio

Analysts with say Wyoming motorists can still expect some additional ease at the pump before the start of 2014.

“We expect prices to decline incrementally through the end of the calendar year,” senior petroleum analyst Gregg Laskoski said on Monday. “But, once we get into the first quarter of the new year, refineries start to deplete their inventory of winter blend gasoline – they have to get ready for the transition to summer blend.”

Laskoski says that transition, along with scheduled refinery maintenance, will lead to generally higher prices in January and February. In the meantime, though, Laskoski says prices throughout the Intermountain West should continue to decline.

Laskoski says the average price for a gallon of regular in the Cowboy State is $3.15.

“That’s down a little less than two cents in the past week – the national average is $3.24 a gallon, and that’s also down,” Laskoski said. “This is something that reflects very strong numbers in terms of crude oil inventory and refinery output.”

Laskoski says the Rocky Mountain region, when compared with figures from last year, has seen some of the largest regional decreases in the country.

Gas is selling for as low as $2.86 in Casper and $2.96 in Cheyenne and Laramie.
