ABC7 is working to find out more on why and if it has anything to do with what's currently happening with oil prices.

Oil prices tanked below zero on Monday as demand for energy was collapsing amid the coronavirus pandemic, and traders don't want to get stuck owning crude with nowhere to store it.
