Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy, said for the third straight week, motorists have been greeted by falling gasoline prices in virtually every corner in every city and state in the country.

“Oil prices continue to sag on worries over the spread of the coronavirus, blowing the door wide open for a continued slump at the pump,”DeHaan said. “Nearly 5,000 stations are currently selling gasoline under $2 per gallon, a critical psychological level, while some 17 states have at least one gas station under the mark. For most, there’s no signs of the slump slowing, especially with fears of the spread of the Chinese-originating virus continuing to grow. Motorists need not be in a rush to fill up again, and with prices plummeting, I would urge them to be mindful that some stations are passing the drops on much faster and to shop around.”
