Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. Was that reading hot to neutral? If so, test from hot to ground and let me know the reading.
Go test you meter in a known working outlet. Let me know the reading.
Now go back and retest the incoming wires.
You'll need to check for a bad hot wire connection either at an outlet ahead of that one or possibly at the panel. Having low reading on both neutral and ground indicates the bad connection on the black wire.
