Snapshot shows an improved Wyoming economy, but downturn's fallout continues to mar outlook

November 14, 2017

Wyoming's economy is now performing better than it was during the energy bust, but has yet to catch up with the losses of recent years, according to a snapshot of employment, energy spending and tourism numbers released Thursday by state economists.

The snapshot offers an immediate glimpse of the state's economy, from the amount of monthly sales and use taxes paid by the mining sector, to the number of tourists visiting Wyoming parks and the weekly wages in the private sector.
