UCF-area gas is continuing to drop and students get to reap the benefits.

Gas at the Wawa and RaceTrac dropped to $1.99 a gallon on Tuesday, well below the Florida state average of $2.21 per gallon.


Overall, the national average is $2.11 per gallon and gas has dropped for over 100 straight days.

“The national average currently stands at its lowest since May 9, 2009, a date that saw 8.9% unemployment and Phil Jackson coaching the Los Angeles Lakers toward the NBA title,” said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst with GasBuddy in a release.
