ALTOONA, Pa. — Sheetz kicked off the holiday season at its convenience stores by reducing the price of Unleaded 88 gasoline to $1.99 a gallon from Nov. 21 to 28.
The price is available at the 368 Sheetz stores offering Unleaded 88. Customers can check if their local Sheetz sells Unleaded 88 through the Sheetz mobile app or website.
“Sheetz is a family-owned and -operated company, and we are always looking for ways to help the communities we serve,” said Travis Sheetz, president and CEO of Altoona, Pa.-based Sheetz. “We are excited to extend this offer to our customers as many of them start hitting the road for the Thanksgiving holiday.”
- Sheetz is No. 13 on CSP’s 2022 Top 202 ranking of U.S. convenience-store chains by company-owned store count.
While the promotion should help draw customers to Sheetz c-stores, the retailer also sees it as a way to introduce more drivers to Unleaded 88, sharing the following information:
- The Environmental Protection Agency has approved Unleaded 88 for use in all 2001 and newer cars, trucks and SUVs.
- The only difference in the makeup of Unleaded 88 and 87 is the percentage of ethanol. Unleaded 88 contains 5% more ethanol than Unleaded 87.
- Unleaded 88 burns cleaner and reduces toxins, making it more environmentally friendly.
- Unleaded 88 is better for a customer’s engine. It provides a higher-octane level than regular 87 fuel that helps boost horsepower and efficiency in a vehicle.
