Gas Prices High

Laramie, Wy –
The price of gas in Wyoming is near three dollars and still going up. On top of that gas stations in Denver have run out of gas over the last few days. The average price of gas in Wyoming went up over ten cents a gallon last night. It is now two dollars and 69 cents. That is a new record for the state. The spokesperson for Triple-A Mountain West, Denice Harris, says she's not sure how high prices will get this weekend, but she's fairly certain they will get higher. Harris says people are canceling trips this weekend to conserve and save money.
