With high gas prices still impacting drivers during the busy Thanksgiving holiday travel season, Sheetz is unleashing another offer to help save you some money throughout the next week.
So what’s the deal? Sheetz has dropped the price of Unleaded 88 to $1.99 per gallon now through Monday, Nov. 28.
“It’s a safe, approved fuel for road vehicles and non-heavy-duty engines with a model year of 2001 or newer,” the company said in a promotional e-mail.
3News’ Brandon Simmons spotted the lower price early Monday as a station in Twinsburg had already dropped its Unleaded 88 to $1.99 per gallon.
It comes as GasBuddy reported early Monday the average price per gallon in Cleveland and Akron is currently listed at $3.50 and $3.44, respectively.
You may remember Sheetz held a similar deal during the summer when the company dropped its Unleaded 88 to $3.99 per gallon around July 4.
So what is the difference with Unleaded 88? It contains more ethanol.
"And the difference is minute except when it comes to price," according to a previous interview with Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. "The price of E15, or what's called Unleaded 88, can be 5, 10, and sometimes even 30 cents less than the regular gasoline that you may fill up with."
Worried about using Unleaded 88 in your vehicle? Check your owner’s manual if you’re still uncertain. But remember, this is only for cars and SUVs.
"You don’t want to use it in motorcycles, small engines and boats," DeHaan said earlier this year. "Only cars. And you also want to double check what your manufacturer says."
