Wyoming's unemployment rate fell to 4.9% in December. That's .2% lower than the month before and way below the national average of 7.8%.
But it's not all good news. The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services says that while unemployment fell, there was really no growth in employment.
According to Joan Evans, some of that can be attributed to flat job growth in oil and gas and seeing dips in rig count.
"We haven't been this low since February 2009 and so I think most folks look at that and say, wow, we're getting folks back to work which is the case, however we are seeing some job loss in the state," said Joan Evans, Director of Wyoming Department of Workforce Services.
