LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The number of oil and gas jobs in Wyoming is up.

The latest figures from the state Economic Analysis Division show that there were more than 18,000 people working in the field in November. That's almost 3,000 more than in November 2010.

Jim Robinson is a senior economist for the state. He tells KUWR ( ) there could be a slow-down in natural gas development in Wyoming because of plentiful supplies exceeding demand.
