PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — Gas was $2.99 per gallon at some gas stations in Palm Beach County on Tuesday.
It's a sight that drivers haven't seen in quite a while.
"When I see cheap gas, that means I can hang out with my friends. So, there's stars in my eyes. I’m like, 'Yes,'" Sophia Arias, a customer at a North Palm Beach gas station, said.

Drivers at a Rocket Fuel, located at U.S. 1 and Palmetto Road, waited in long lines to get a turn at the pump to pay $2.99 per gallon.
"Am I dreaming? Like for real? Because it hasn’t been this low for so long, for years now," Aniel Blanc said.
Across the street though, the prices were about 40 cents higher but still under $4 per gallon.
"We may be close to a bottom here, not that we're gonna spike up, but we may see some subtle increases here and there," Patrick De Haan, oil analyst with Gas Buddy, said.
De Haan said all eyes are on the price of crude oil right now.
"Earlier today it was down, but now OPEC is threatening to cut oil production to stem a decline in prices," De Haan said. "Oil prices are back up about 4% today. [The] wholesale price of gasoline is only up about a percent."
So, will we continue to see gas below $3? We''ll just have to wait and see.
"Can we get used to it now?" Blanc asked
According to AAA, the national average price for gas was $3.89 on Tuesday and the average price in Florida was $3.52. In Palm Beach County, the average price was $3.73.
