CHEYENNE – Gas prices are more important to most Americans than health care and saving money when it comes to household budgets, according to a report released Tuesday by gas prices website GasBuddy.com.

The 2019 Consumer Sentiment on Gasoline Survey found that only groceries, housing and utilities were considered more important to respondents, and they would rather receive free gas than find a $20 bill on the street or have a dinner bill paid for.
