Gas Prices Rising Sharply

Written by on April 22, 2019

Wyoming gas prices have risen 7.2 cents per gallon in the past week.

The average price at the pump in Wyoming is $2.66 today. That’s according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 494 stations. The Big Horn Basin is slightly above average, with gas prices at around $2.77 per gallon in most communities.

According to GasBuddy price reports, the cheapest station in Wyoming is priced at $2.38 per gallon today while the most expensive is $3.15 per gallon, a difference of 77 cents.

The cheapest price in the entire country today stands at $2.10, while the most expensive is $5.19, a difference of $3.09. The national average is up 22.3 cents per gallon from a month ago, and gas prices in Wyoming are 29.1 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.

The seemingly never-ending streak of rising gasoline prices has largely continued unabated across the country over the last week. Patrick DeHaan with GasBuddy says that prices continue to drift higher, although the pace has slowed somewhat in the last week. However, he says that may end soon as rumors point to an end to U.S. issued waivers that allowed countries to continue buying oil from Iran.
