NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — Gas has officially dropped below a dollar in Tennessee.
Patriot Gas in Paris, Tenn. is selling gas for 99 cents per gallon. According to GasBuddy, it’s the first gas station in the state to lower its price this far.
Last week, a gas station in London, Ky. became the first station to advertise gas for 99 cents.
“Absolutely amazing to see how quickly prices have fallen, and the return of something few Americans have seen since the early 2000s,” said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “We’re in uncharted waters due to demand plummeting in light of the coronavirus situation, and yesterday oil prices fell to their lowest level since 2002 in a sign of the deep distress our economy is facing.”
