The price of gas in Wyoming declined by 2 cents per gallon over the previous 24 hours to average $4.74.
The website GasBuddy.com, which tracks national gas prices, reported Wyoming’s average gas price is down 2 cents from a week ago, and is up, $1.33 per gallon from one year ago.
Wyoming’s average price for gasoline remained below the national average of $4.50 and is 24 cents below the Wyoming average.
High and Low Prices:
The highest reported gasoline price in Wyoming on Monday was in Moose near Jackson at $5.79 per gallon. The lowest price in the state was $4.05 in Gillette at the Maverick station at 1616 E. U.S. Highway 14-16.
However, a hoax report to GasBuddy.com for a time identified the cheapest gas in the state as being $4 at a Casper station.
The county with the highest average price of gas in the state Monday was Teton County, at $5.13 per gallon. The county with the lowest average was Campbell at $4.33.
These are the highest and lowest reported prices among those stationed surveyed.

*The lowest price per gallon, reported in major Wyoming cities:

There was a false report of $4 per gallon in Casper.
When a report on GasBuddy.com showed a Shell station was selling gas for $4 per gallon, I called and spoke to a very annoyed attendant who said she had received about 15 phone calls inquiring about the low price. I also personally went by the station in question to verify the price was actually $4.53 per gallon.
It appears that a GasBuddy user with the handle “Derry5150” is continuing to report a false price for this particular station. As soon as someone posts the correct price, this uses reports the false $4 price again. Please do NOT call this station to ask about the price.
The lowest price among our surveyed cities is at the Mavrick at 1616 E. U.S. Highway 14-16 in Gillette, with a price of $4.05 per gallon of regular.
