Tired of paying way too much at the pump? Gas prices have just been absurd over the past year. That's mostly to blame on us for actually driving again. The whole supply and demand thing really sucks sometimes, especially when it can pinch your pocketbook the way inflating gas prices can. It's also somewhat annoying considering how much fuel is processed in the Cowboy State, you'd think we'd get a friends and family discount, but I digress.

If you're looking to get 40 cents or more off your gallon, there is a place near Cheyenne and Laramie that is selling gas under *checks notes* 3 bucks! That's a bargain, right! According to the website GasBuddy we just need to head west on I-80 to Buford. As of the last update on GasBuddy, the price per gallon at Phin Deli in Buford Wyoming is just $2.97.

If you're driving from Cheyenne it's a 30-minute drive to Buford, which I'm sure you've seen the gas station at some point if you're driving to Laramie. If you're driving from Laramie, it's around 20 to 25 minutes, depending on how fast you can get up the hill.

With the distance that you would have to drive, is it worth the trip? Well, that depends on how much your vehicle loves gas. You may burn a gallon of gas to get there, and then one back, so you'd really need to get your chalkboard out and do some math. Is it worth it to travel and burn the fresh gas tank you just purchased? Anyone driving a hybrid car is like, I filled up 3 months ago, I guess I can drive 30 minutes.

Either way, you look at it, you have the option to save at the pump, you might just need to take a short trip to do it from Cheyenne or Laramie.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.

LOOK: Here are the pets banned in each state

Because the regulation of exotic animals is left to states, some organizations, including The Humane Society of the United States, advocate for federal, standardized legislation that would ban owning large cats, bears, primates, and large poisonous snakes as pets.

Read on to see which pets are banned in your home state, as well as across the nation.
