Wyoming's ready-mix concrete production is at its lowest point in a decade - an indicator of the slow economy.
The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association says Wyoming concrete hit a 10-year low last year. But that was better than the nation overall, which showed its lowest level since 1994.
The president of the Concrete Association of Wyoming told the paper that the state has been buoyed by activity in the energy industries.
He predicted that activity in 2012 would be about the same as this year.
