The average price for a gallon of gas in Wyoming increased another two cents last week, according to and its survey of nearly 500 gas stations statewide.

“It was a quiet increase over the last week,” senior petroleum analyst Patrick DeHaan said. “Prices rose to an average of $3.46, which is still far below the national average which decreased to $3.64. Prices in Wyoming are still relatively cheap in some communities – Gillette is at $3.34 and Cheyenne is at $3.35.”

DeHaan said, with most refineries wrapping up winter maintenance, Wyoming motorists may experience some limited relief at the pump in the coming weeks.

“The national average has peaked, and many areas around the country may see lower prices,” DeHaan said. “That will take hold in Wyoming, but it may take a little bit longer.”

Dehaan said, traditionally, price movement in Wyoming lags behind the national average. Gas is selling for as low as $3.35 in Casper and $3.37 in Laramie.
