A Brief History of Wyoming
- The state of Wyoming ranks 10th in the U.S. in terms of total area, yet its population of 576,000 ranks it dead last among the 50 states for population and second to last in population density. Because of its low population, much of Wyoming is uninhabited, and many residents own large swaths of land for ranching and farming. Half of the land in Wyoming is owned by the federal government, much of it dedicated to national parks. This makes Wyoming a popular tourist location – the industry pulls in over $2 billion per year for the state. Mineral production is also one of Wyoming’s largest economic sectors, with major minerals such as coal, natural gas, crude oil, trona, diamonds and uranium some of the most abundant.
What to Expect when Shipping to or from Wyoming
- Because of its low population figures and small cities (its largest, Cheyenne, has a population of just 60,000, with a metro area of about 90,000), the state is not popular with auto transporters, as there are no true major cities and few interstates that allow them to get around. Cheyenne is perhaps the most popular place to ship, as two major interstates intersect there. I-80 runs east-west and I-25 runs north-south, but as far as interstates in Wyoming that’s it. Casper sits northwest of Cheyenne along I-25, which can make it a bit cheaper to get to or from there, but overall you should expect slightly higher prices and lower carrier availability for routes into or out of Wyoming.
