Gas Prices Down
Written by Andrew-Rossi on December 18, 2017
As we approach Christmas, a great gift for drivers – average gas prices in the U.S. have fallen to their lowest point in almost four months.
Average retail gasoline prices in Wyoming have fallen 2.6 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.41 per gallon yesterday, which matches the national average – but that cost savings is not being reflected here in the Big Horn Basin, where gas prices average $2.56 per gallon.
Across the state, prices yesterday were 33.6 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago, but are 7.6 cents per gallon lower than a month ago.
Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy, says as long as demand for gasoline continues to weaken, gasoline inventories will continue growing. He called it, quote, “the gift that keeps on giving,” endquote.
