Gas Prices Rising in Wyoming
Written by Andrew-Rossi on November 14, 2017
Although fall traditionally marks a drop in gas prices, that’s not the case this year.
Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.com, says that if gas prices were used to figure out what time of year it is, prices would indicate spring, based on the continued upward trend in much of the country.
However, he says the cheapest price this year was in July, while the most expensive showed up after the driving season concluded, as Hurricane Harvey hit Texas.
Average retail gasoline prices in Wyoming have risen 2.7 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.51/g Sunday, according to GasBuddy. That’s still four cents lower than the national average, which increased this week to $2.55 per gallon. Prices this week in Wyoming were 39.3 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 6.4 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.
DeHaan says that he expects some people to cut their spending during the holidays due to the higher gas prices.
