Within an hour, half a dozen people who purchased gas at the BP on North Mount Juliet Road Thursday morning broke down and were towed, according to S&S Towing and Wrecker Services.
The towing company told News 2 they believe those cars had water in their fuel.
Lauren Brousseau only purchased $3 of gas Thursday morning and found herself on the side of the interstate half a mile later.
