National gas prices hit low before Labor Day, but gas is more expensive in Wyoming


CASPER, Wyoming — Gas prices across the country have remained relatively low in the lead up to Labor Day, but gas in Wyoming is generally more expensive than the national average.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration says the average retail price of gasoline nationwide was $3.45 per gallon Aug. 25, the lowest price on the Monday before Labor Day since 2010. But in Wyoming, the state average was $3.61 per gallon.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports ( ) Albany, Campbell, Carbon, Converse, Natrona and Uinta counties generally had the lowest prices in the state, with gasoline ranging from $3.45 to $3.57 per gallon. Prices were highest in Teton County, where the average price ranged from $3.80 per gallon to $3.91 per gallon.

The EIA says gas prices have fallen nationwide because of a drop in oil prices.
