CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Various indicators show that 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.

A recent economic report says between April and September of this year the state’s economy improved every month by more than 2 percent compared to the year before in sales and use tax paid by the mining sector, the number of tourists visiting Wyoming parks and weekly wages in the private sector.

But state revenue remains down and is a concern for lawmakers heading into the budget session in a few months.

Economist Jim Robinson of the state’s Economic Analysis Division says the report continues to show a stabilizing economy.
