More drilling here in the U S of A and the fact that there isn't enough pipeline capacity to move the glut of domestically produced oil around the country to lower the price for everyone means it's cheaper to fill up your tank right here in Billings. Nationally the average is a bit under $3.50 but here in the Magic City it's well under $3. In Wyoming, where taxes on energy are even lower and is the epicenter of the glut, prices are below $2.60 per gallon. A big tip of my hat to the roughnecks who call Billings home when they're not busting their butts in the Bakken.
