If I get a flat tire, can I still drive to a gas station to get it fixed?

My tire isn't completely flat. Is it safe to drive a short distance to a gas station?

“Even if your tire isn’t completely flat, driving any distance on it could further damage the tire or your wheel.
If the gas station is more than half a mile away, it’s probably best to call a tow company.
If you have roadside assistance with your car insurance company or AAA, you can also call them for service.”
