Gas price decrease came too late in Fremont County

Jun 14, 2012 - Kent Lever, Riverton

Editor:

Well, out gasoline suppliers are at it again. All spring we heard how gas prices were coming down nationwide because oil prices were stable again, or dropping. But here locally, the best we could do was see the price of a gallon stay at $3.68 or so for a couple of months.

I guess that is better than having it go up about a penny a day, which is what was happening before, but not much.

Now, at last, our price is down to about $3.58, but that only happened long after the price announced nationally had been dropping.

This is just in time for the "summer driving season," when prices usually go up. I bet we get this "lower" price for only a couple of week and then up it will go.
