We've seen gas prices on the uptick, but for a while but not as much as what we're seeing in other spots around the country, as issues have continued overseas. However, believe it or not, the national average gas price is actually down from where it was last week, but Wyoming has certainly seen an increase.
As we are heading into the first weekend in March, gas prices are on the uptick, but not nearly as much as what we're seeing in other spots around the country, as issues continue to escalate overseas. The national average gas price is up over a full quarter from where it was last week, but Wyoming's increase is a little over half that.
As we have almost made it to the halfway point in January, gas prices have continued their downward trend for Wyoming and are as close to the national average as they've been in some time. At the end of summer in 2021, the average gas price in Wyoming was about 40 cents more than the national average. As of today (January 14th), Wyoming's is just one cent more than the national average gas price.
We're just over two weeks from Christmas and gas prices, which have been on the slow decline, took a slightly more significant dip this week, and are now just six cents higher than the national average. It was just a few months ago when Wyoming's average gas price was 40 cents higher than the national average. We're on the right track it seems.
Slowly but surely, gas prices have been dipping for Wyoming. The national average also took a slight dip as well. However, the question remains, will gas prices take a big dip now that oil prices are beginning to take a stark drop off?
As Thanksgiving is now just a couple days away, there will be plenty of traveling happening throughout the holiday weekend. So how are gas prices as we approach such hefty traffic on the roads? A little bit better than previously.
