Wyoming gas prices continue to go up in anticipation of the summer tourist season as manufacturers switch to the “summer blend” of gasoline, reflecting a national trend.

According to GasBuddy, average gasoline prices in Wyoming have risen 12.5 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $3.20/g today, according to the website’s survey of 494 stations in Wyoming. Prices in Wyoming are 32.8 cents per gallon higher than a month ago and stand 9.3 cents per gallon lower than a year ago. The national average price of diesel has risen 2.0 cents in the last week and stands at $4.02 per gallon.

The cheapest station in Wyoming was priced at $2.56/g yesterday while the most expensive was $3.69/g, a difference of $1.13/g. The lowest price in the state yesterday was $2.56/g while the highest was $3.69/g, a difference of $1.13/g, according to GasBuddy’s analysis.

The national average price of gasoline has risen 6.4 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $3.51/g today. The national average is up 27.0 cents per gallon from a month ago and stands 8.7 cents per gallon higher than a year ago, according to GasBuddy data compiled from more than 11 million weekly price reports covering over 150,000 gas stations across the country.

“We’ve now seen the national average price of gasoline rising for four straight weeks, which isn’t uncommon for this time of year. What is uncommon is the number of attacks on Russian oil refiners; attacks which could have ripple effects worldwide if they continue,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “Russia could see more capacity impacted by the attacks, forcing it to buy such products on the global market, pushing prices up everywhere. With oil prices now under more pressure and attacks potentially increasing on Russian refiners, we could be in for a few more weeks of rising prices. Significant as well is the fact that Americans are now seeing inflation again at the pump with prices higher than they were a year ago.”
