Tim’s Observations:

Although the national average price of gas is dropping, Wyoming’s price continues to be 20 cents per gallon higher than the national average. 

Individual counties across the state saw mixed averages Friday. Most counties saw a a decline of a couple of cents, but the biggest drops were in Fremont County, down 19 cents per gallon, and Uinta County, down 42 cents. 

There were counties where prices went up Friday, notably Albany, Carbon, Converse and Goshen counties, with saw prices go up as much as 10 cents.   

Supply and demand is driving the oil and gasoline markets. According to GasBuddy, oil inventories are “skyrocketing.” Crude oil inventories increased by 3.3 million barrels, to a total of 427.1 million. Inventories are 10.5 million barrels below last year’s — 2.4% — and are about 5% below the five-year average for this time of year.

Gasoline inventories are also increasing. Gasoline inventories increased by 5.8 million barrels to a total of 224.9 million. Even at that level, inventories are down 11.6 million barrels —- 4.9% — from one year ago and are 5% below the five-year average for this time of year. 

Let’s hope this trend continues into the fall when heating oil demand will be added to the equation.
