Sheetz is helping customers celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday by reducing the price of Unleaded 88 gasoline to $1.99 for a second year in a row at all its stores that offer the fuel grade in Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.

The limited-time promotion began today and will continue through midnight Monday, Nov. 27.

While intended to drive traffic to Sheetz stores during the holiday week, the discount is also part of the chain's longer-term effort to drive acceptance of Unleaded 88 gasoline, which has been approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for use in all 2001 and newer cars, trucks and SUVs. Unleaded 88 burns cleaner and reduces toxins, making it more environmentally friendly, the retailer said.

Customers can check if their local Sheetz sells U88 through the Sheetz mobile app or website.

  • Sheetz is No. 12 on CSP’s 2023 Top 202 ranking of U.S. convenience-store chains by company-owned store count.

The Thanksgiving week discount is the latest in a string of reduced-price fuel promotions by Sheetz.

In late August and early September, the retailer recognized Truck Driver Appreciation Week by reducing diesel fuel prices by 35 cents a gallon. Sheetz also cut its diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) prices to 99 cents a gallon at the pump. On Independence Day, the convenience retailer reduced its gas prices for all grades to $1.776 a gallon, commemorating the year when the Declaration of Independence was signed. In April, Sheetz reduced the price of E85 to $1.85 a gallon to raise awareness of the biofuel blend. In March, the retailer cut prices on premium, midgrade and ethanol-free fuel grades in a March Madness promotion, and over Thanksgiving 2022, Sheetz cut the price of Unleaded 88 gasoline to $1.99 a gallon.

Altoona, Pennsylvania-based Sheetz Inc. operates in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Ohio and North Carolina.
