CASPER — Officials with the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services say the state's job market grew marginally in the third quarter of last year.

Thirteen of the state's 23 counties saw employment gains in the last quarter, while the other 10 counties saw job numbers slip.

David Bullard is senior economist at Workforce Services. He said the state's employment slowdown is being mirrored by a slowdown in the energy industry.

Bullard said that employment is still growing at below 1 percent, but the state is losing jobs in the oil-and-gas sector. He says the state is still dealing with lingering effects from the 2008 recession.
