KOTA Territory drivers react to drop in gas prices

Posted:

Drivers in KOTA Territory like the latest trend they've seen with gas prices.

"I'm definitely pleased it's lower. I'm encouraged by seeing a lot of more domestic production going on," said Rick Norman from Stevensville, Montana.

"Everybody is. The common working man can't afford to fill this truck up. It's $100 every time I fill it up," said Alan White of Banner.

AAA says the average price for a gallon of gas is 22 cents lower in Wyoming than it was a month ago and six cents lower than last week.

In Sheridan prices range between $3.19 and $3.29. But that's a lot more than Casper where it's around just $3.00.

"I don't see why it's higher in one part of it than it is in the other. Everybody's burning fuel. So it ought to be the same all over the country," said White.

"They're definitely higher, at least here in Sheridan right now than what I've seen elsewhere," said Norman.

Norman drives through Northeast Wyoming multiple times each year and says he saw much lower prices while driving back home from Iowa.

"I saw as low as 2.70 in Iowa. That was ethanol. So it's quite a bit of difference," said Norman.

White works in the North Dakota oil fields and spends plenty of time on the road. He's noticed a similar trend in diesel prices, but prefers Sheridan's prices to those in North Dakota.

"They been steadily going down over there. Diesel is still above $4. Gas is going down, but over there it's still way up," said White.

Sheridan's diesel prices are also 16 cents below the state average.

AAA reports you'll have to head east for the cheapest gas in South Dakota. The average price in Rapid City is around $3.33, but it is only $2.94 in Sioux Falls.
