GILLETTE (WNE) — Wyoming gas prices are unchanged in the past week, averaging $2.22 a gallon on Monday.

Gas prices in Wyoming are 4.0 cents a gallon higher than a month ago and stand 30.7 cents per gallon lower than a year ago, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 494 stations.

The cheapest station in Wyoming is priced at $1.89 a gallon Monday while the most expensive is $2.69 a gallon, a difference of 80 cents.

Campbell County continues to have prices that are among the lowest in the state at $2.097. Other counties with low prices include Albany at $2.044, Laramie at $2.177 and Goshen at $2.159.

The highest counties are Park at $2.372, Hot Springs at $2.299, Johnson at $2.264 and Carbon at $2.407.

The national average price of gasoline has risen 1.1 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $2.40 a gallon today.

The national average is at its highest level since the pandemic.

"Increases are likely to slow down in the immediate short-term unless and until oil prices see renewed momentum," said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.

"Finally, after several weeks of sharply rising gas prices, the pace of price increases has slowed significantly in recent days as prices are now largely caught up to oil's increases as of late,"he said.

He noted that demand for gasoline last week was at its highest level since November, which shows that the nation continues to see slow improvement from the pandemic.
