Wyoming Gas Prices Rise Since Last Week

Gas Pump

Average gasoline prices in Wyoming have risen 4.1 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $3.31/g today, according to GasBuddy’s survey of 494 stations in Wyoming. Prices in Wyoming are 0.5 cents per gallon higher than a month ago and stand 4.8 cents per gallon lower than a year ago. The national average price of diesel has fallen 4.6 cents in the last week and stands at $3.90 per gallon.

According to GasBuddy price reports, the cheapest station in Wyoming was priced at $2.76/g yesterday while the most expensive was $4.29/g, a difference of $1.53/g. The lowest price in the state yesterday was $2.76/g while the highest was $4.29/g, a difference of $1.53/g.

The national average price of gasoline has fallen 3.2 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $3.58/g today. The national average is down 3.7 cents per gallon from a month ago and stands 6.1 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.

Neighboring areas and their current gas prices:

Fort Collins- $3.12/g, down 7.7 cents per gallon from last week’s $3.20/g.

Ogden- $3.69/g, down 9.1 cents per gallon from last week’s $3.78/g.

Billings- $3.46/g, down 2.6 cents per gallon from last week’s $3.48/g.

“While pump prices haven’t exactly plummeted, we’ve seen the average price of gasoline drop in a majority of states over the last week as refineries finish maintenance and ramp up output of products like gasoline,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. “With gas prices now nearing a 10-cent drop to the high we saw a few weeks ago, the future looks good as we get closer to Memorial Day; price drops could potentially accelerate after last week’s jobs data shows the economy continues to cool off. While gas prices stand slightly above where they were last year, I expect most Americans will see prices fall before the holiday weekend, and I’m optimistic the trend could extend into June and beyond. I’m excited to say it does appear that for now, the worst is behind us.”

Luckily for Wyoming, the state will not participate in any emission-reducing programs that will affect blue states as they are beginning to be adopted.  The state that will be impacted the most will be California.

A new report has come out that the Golden State will see drastic upticks in gasoline prices in the next two years, due to an emission-reduction program that is being implemented.

The California Air Resources Board Low Carbon Fuel Standard 2023 amendments impact assessment released in September found the proposed reforms would raise costs that drivers would feel at the pump.

Gas prices are estimated to rise by 47 cents per gallon in 2025 and 52 cents in 2026, not including the existing gas tax in the state.

The Low Carbon Fuel Standard was created in 2007 by former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to reduce the state’s carbon emissions. Currently, the California Air Resources Board is amending the program to align with its plan to reach carbon neutrality by 2045, reported The Sacramento Bee.

The board indefinitely postponed a March vote on the proposal.

California Republicans have urged Governor Gavin Newsom to suspend the state’s gas tax as prices continue to surge.
