Drivers stop for cheap gas on getaway day

Drivers made a pit stop at one busy Bronx gas station as they traveled through the tri-state area.



According to GasBuddy, current holiday gas prices are the cheapest since 2008. On Wednesday evening, a gallon of regular gas at the Ultimate Gas station on Sedgwick Avenue, just off the Major Deegan Expressway, was $2.18.



Station employees and customers tell News 12 that people coming from Manhattan and New Jersey find the conveniently located station a blessing.



Traffic on the Major Deegan was gridlocked throughout Wednesday evening.
