Gas Prices Highest in Years

Gas prices are getting pumped up to their highest level in years.
The national average price of gasoline is now its priciest since July of 2015, rising to $2.68 per gallon overnight, according to GasBuddy.com. The sudden surge after a week of relative calm at the pump can be blamed on oil prices surging to nearly $67 per barrel, the highest level since 2014, on fears of military action in Syria and trade conflict with China. U.S. oil inventories also stand 20-percent lower than a year ago, according to Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy.
Prices in Cody currently sit between 2.49 and 2.54 per gallon. Powell’s prices range between 2.47 and 2.72.
