Let's enjoy some positive news amid the coronavirus outbreak, shall we? We have just the thing: BP announced Monday it will give back to health care workers.

Doctors, nurses, hospital workers and first responders are eligible for 50 cents off per gallon of fuel as a way for the company to say thank you to those on the front lines. The discount will be valid at BP and Amoco stations across the US and only requires those eligible to first register at a link to use a discount code at the fuel pump.

BP said this small act of giving back will be valid for the entire month of April for health care workers.

Aside from any discounts, fuel prices have reached record lows in the past weeks, partially due to the coronavirus pandemic. With fewer drivers on the roads amid stay-at-home orders, demand continues to fall. Meanwhile, a Saudi-Russian oil price war dumped tons of cheap oil on the market to drive crude oil prices down. Just last week, the national average for a gallon of gas dropped below $2, and experts believe it could fall to as low as $1.50 per gallon.
