A gas station in Wisconsin is selling a gallon of regular gasoline for 95 cents as of Monday as prices continue to drop across the United States due to increasing supplies and a drop in demand amid the CCP virus pandemic.
A user on GasBuddy reported the low price at an Ole and Lenas Fuel Depot in Wautoma, Wisconsin, becoming possibly the cheapest gas in the country.
According to Spectrum News, other gas stations in Wautoma were selling gas for 97 cents per gallon.
Currently, stations in Oklahoma are selling gas for as little as 97 cents per gallon. Similar prices can be found in Ohio and Texas, Fox News reported.
Gas prices have plummeted in recent weeks as state and local governments across the United States implement business shutdowns to curb the spread of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) virus, a type of coronavirus that emerged in mainland China that causes COVID-19.
“Today, we enter the 38th straight day the national average gas price has fallen, and the first week of the national average being under $2/gal for the first time in over four years as motorists park their cars and shelter in place, leading to an unprecedented drop never before seen in U.S. gasoline demand, causing prices to sink like a rock,” said Patrick De Haan, the head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy, reported Wisconsin station WMTV.
Amid the pandemic, there is “quite a bit more downside that’s in the pipeline coming in the weeks ahead,” he added. “We could easily see the national average fall 50 cents to a dollar per gallon.”
Earlier this month, a gas station in Kentucky became the first in the nation to sell a gallon for less than $1.
