A Bureau of Land Management oil and gas lease sale in Wyoming has generated nearly $3 million.
About 43,000 acres in 54 parcels were sold during the bimonthly sale this week.
Bids from $2 per acre to $350 per acre were offered.
The next BLM oil and gas lease sale will be held Feb. 2 in Cheyenne.
Half the money raised from the BLM lease sales is shared with the state of Wyoming.
