CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming’s unemployment rate is below where it was this time last year and continues to run far below the national average.

The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services reports Tuesday that the state’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate rose from 5.2 percent in May to 5.4 percent in June — not a statistically significant rise.

The national rate now stands at 8.2 percent while Wyoming’s jobless rate for June 2011 stood at 6 percent.

Total nonfarm employment in Wyoming increased from 295,800 in June 2011 to 298,300 in June 2012 — a gain of 2,500 jobs.
