Gas Prices High in Big Horn Basin
Written by Andrew-Rossi on November 13, 2018
Gasoline prices in Wyoming have fallen 1.4 cents per gallon in the past week, although our state’s average is well above what the rest of the country is paying at the pump.
Gas prices in the Cowboy State are averaging $2.87 per gallon as of Sunday, which compares with the national average of $2.67 per gallon. That’s according to the website gasbuddy.com. However, prices in the Big Horn Basin are still hovering above the state’s average. Greybull is currently at $2.88 per gallon, Powell is still higher at between $2.93 and $2.95 per gallon, and Cody’s prices are higher yet, ranging between $2.96 and $2.98 per gallon as of this morning.
Over the last five years, average gasoline prices on November 12 in Wyoming have ranged widely, with the lowest price of $2.12 recorded in 2016, and the highest price of $3.24 in 2013.
Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy, says that the price plummet that’s currently being experienced by the country is part of oil’s longest losing streak in nearly 34 years.
He points out that every day, Americans are spending nearly $100 million less on gasoline than they were just 30 days ago.
