Wyoming Gas Prices Could Fall For Rest of Summer

Written by on July 7, 2020

With everything going on, at least you’re paying less for gas . . . right?

The latest survey from the website GasBuddy shows trends that are exactly where you’d expect them to be, given the national mood and the end of the holiday weekend. As of yesterday, of the 494 Wyoming gas stations surveyed, Wyoming gas prices have risen 1.5 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.09/g. Gas prices in Wyoming as a whole are nearly 11 cents per gallon higher than a month ago, but stand 62.1 cents per gallon lower than a year ago. The cheapest station in Wyoming is priced at $1.64/g, the most expensive is $2.59/g, a difference of 95.0 cents per gallon. GasBuddy didn’t say where either of those stations were located, so they can’t help you there.

This isn’t too far off from the national trends. The national average price of gasoline has fallen 1.2 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $2.17/g. The national average is up 14.9 cents per gallon from a month ago and stands 58.1 cents per gallon lower than a year ago. Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy, says quote, “With July 4 behind us, we’re now half way through the summer driving season, and the pace of gas price increases has finally hit a wall. As of Sunday evening, it appears possible that we may break the nine straight weeks of rising prices thanks to a drop in demand fueled by COVID-19 cases surging in some states,” unquote.

GasBuddy is the authoritative voice for gas prices and the only source for station-level data spanning nearly two decades and over 100,000 gas stations nationwide.
