If there could possibly be a positive benefit from the outbreak of the coronavirus, it looks like it could benefit us a lot at the pumps.

The coronavirus panic is creating a huge problem for many businesses as goods cannot be shipped, people cannot fly, and many are simply on lockdown.

However, according to a story on WIVB, the AAA, we could see a benefit from it all very soon.

That benefit, is lower gas prices.  They're estimating that coronavirus epidemic is creating an oil war that could push prices under $2 per gallon in the next couple weeks.

The current average right now is $2.38 per gallon.
