Study: Americans can finally afford gas but have nowhere to go


Nashville, TN - As gas prices fall across the country and health concerns rise, many Americans find themselves in an unusual situation. They have a full tank of gas and nowhere to go.


"I just filled my tank completely for the first time since last April," one customer said at a local gas station. "Now I'm heading home to watch Netflix."


Hundreds, if not thousands, of events and gatherings have been canceled due to fears surrounding COVID-19. Many Americans have also been encouraged to stay home and socially distance themselves from others.


One man told us, "It seems wrong to just leave a car full of cheap gas sit in my driveway. I think I'm going to drive until I have a half a tank, then turn around. At least I'll feel like I'm taking advantage of the low pump prices."


Gas prices have been reported as low as $1.65 in some parts of the country.
