However, it's probably no surprise that tourism is a significant component and that it added $2.6 billion to the economy in 2010, according to Wyoming Business Report. Energy is also big business in Wyoming. The state has the largest coal-producing region in the U.S., is one of the top producers for natural gas and is considered one of the most favorable areas in the country for wind power development, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
