The price of gas in Wyoming declined by 3 cents on Wednesday from the previous 24 hours to average $4.68.
The website GasBuddy.com, which tracks national gas prices, reported Wyoming’s average gas price is down 10 cents from a week ago and is up $1.24 per gallon from one year ago.
Wyoming’s average price for gasoline remained above the national average of $4.45.
High and Low Prices:
The highest reported gasoline price in Wyoming on Wednesday was in Moose, near Jackson, at $5.79 per gallon. The lowest price, $3.97 per gallon, was at a Gillette Conoco station at 302 W. Lakeway Road.
The county with the highest average price was Platte at $5.02 per gallon. The county with the lowest average was Natrona at $4.36.
These are the highest and lowest reported prices among those stationed surveyed.

Platte County’s average price took sharp upturn Wednesday, from $4.72 to $5.02 per gallon. However, it could be an anomaly in reporting. I would think this price should drop back under $5.00 by Thursday.
