(Wyo.)-State Gas Prices Up But Still Below U.S. Average

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 02/11/2013 09:29 AM
     CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Gas prices in Wyoming have steadily increased over the past few weeks after hitting lows not seen in two years, but the cost of a gallon of fuel is still much lower than the national average.
     Greg Laskoski, a petroleum analyst for gasbuddy.com, says
 that prices across the United States are also up, but by more than twice as much.
     The national average stood at $3.54 a gallon on Friday, while the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in Wyoming stood at $2.98, according to figures tracked on gasbuddy.
     Laskoski says Wyoming's gas prices are low because of relatively cheap Canadian crude and because Rocky Mountain-area refineries are running at a higher capacity than their counterparts elsewhere in the country.
