The title says it all. How do I set the footnote spacing to single-spaced? At the bottom of the picture, you can see that the spacing between the footnotes is slightly less than the spacing between the lines in each footnote. I would like to keep the spacing between footnotes as it is but to decrease line spacing in the individual footnotes. Thanks!

In this solution you have to adjust the values of \footnotesep and \setspace@singlespace manually:

\documentclass[preprint,nofootinbib]{revtex4-2}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{setspace}
\footnotesep=9pt
  
\usepackage{etoolbox}
\makeatletter
\patchcmd{\@footnotetext}
  {\setspace@singlespace}{0.8}
  {}{}
\makeatother

This is the main body of text.\footnote{This is a footnote where I want to have single spacing instead of the current double spacing.  This is a footnote where I want to have single spacing instead of the current double spacing.}  

This is the main body of text.\footnote{This is a footnote where I want to have single spacing instead of the current double spacing.  This is a footnote where I want to have single spacing instead of the current double spacing.}
