Some really sad news coming from the campus of UL-Lafayette.

The police department on campus has announced that a long-time officer has passed away.

According to the social media post by UL Police, "Lieutenant Billy Abrams passed away on the evening of Wednesday, October 11, 2023, peacefully among close family following an illness."

While all of his colleagues will miss him, he will also be missed by the many whom he came into contact with while serving the UL community.

Personally, we got to know Lt. Abrams by attending and hosting many events on the UL campus and he was always welcoming and very polite to us.

We here will keep Lt. Abrams, his family, and colleagues in our thoughts and prayers.

Here's the official announcement from UL Police.


LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
