Our low price leader, the Tumbleweed Express in Laramie, is up 10 cents per gallon, from $3.09 to $3.19. This still remains the lowest reported price in Wyoming. According to AAA spokesperson Andrew Gross, hurricane Ian could cause fuel supply problems, which could push up prices in the short term. With hurricane Ian, disrupting offshore oil production in the Gulf of Mexico could cause an increase in gas prices, albeit temporarily. Nationally, gas prices have risen for the last seven days.
