There hasn't been much improvement in Wyoming's economy in general since the early 80's oil bust with the exception of the recent blip in energy prices.
All they've done is TALK about "economic development" in this state for 30 years. So the fact that rural areas aren't seeing any improvement is not a surprise in the least.
Fact is, those who have the power and money want to keep it the way it's always been, and they do. Nothing will ever change until people change their gov't in Cheyenne and really WANT to join the rest of the nation in economic growth (once we get out of this republican created depression)
I told people in 2000, look at Republican controled Wyoming and it's economy - that is what a Republican controled Federal Gov't will do to the USA. And here we are in a depression.
