Laramie, Wy – Natural gas production increased five-point-four percent in Wyoming last year. That is the ninth consecutive year the state has recorded higher gas production. According to preliminary numbers compiled by the Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, the state produced two-point-one (b) billion cubic feet of gas. That ranks the state third behind Texas and Oklahoma in gas production. Wyoming accounted for almost nine percent of total U-S gas production.
Laramie, Wy – Wyoming's low unemployment means that there are fewer people looking for jobs. That has become a problem for both existing and new businesses that need employees. But Jerimiah Rieman with Wyoming's Department of Workforce services says solutions are not easy. For instance recruiting workers from out of state is not the answer when there is nowhere to live.
Cheyenne, Wy – A Wyoming state trooper stopped a pick-up truck east of Cheyenne on I-80 early Saturday morning and with the help of a police dog discovered several suitcases filled with more than three million dollars in cash. The truck's driver and passenger could not explain where the money came from or why they had it so officers let them carry on their way. But they confiscated the money in what Wyoming highway patrol sergeant Steve Townsend says may be a record-breaking seizure.
