Gas prices fall below $2 in Terre Haute


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Gas prices have fallen below $2 in parts of the Wabash Valley, but don’t expect it to last long.

According to Gas Buddy, the temporary price drop is part of a “price war.”

“It may last for hours or days but probably not much beyond that,” Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy told WTWO/WAWV Wednesday. “With coronavirus fears pushing oil down the door has been opened temporarily for what you’re seeing.”
