OHIO (WTRF) — Today Sheetz, a major Mid-Atlantic restaurant and convenience chain, announced it has kicked off the holiday season by reducing the price of Unleaded 88 to $1.99 a gallon. This limited time promotion begins today and lasts through November 28.

The price is only available at the 368 Sheetz stores that offer 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 at the heart of everything we do is giving back to our customers and the communities we reside in,” said Travis Sheetz, President and CEO of Sheetz. “We hope this price reduction provides much-needed relief at the pump for our customers as they travel for the Thanksgiving holiday.”

Sheetz is also offering a special promotion that can be utilized even after this offer ends on November 28.

Key customer information:

  • Unleaded 88 has been approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for use in all 2001 and newer cars, trucks and SUVs.
  • Sheetz says the only difference in the makeup of Unleaded 88 and 87 is their percentage of ethanol. Unleaded 88 contains 5 percent more ethanol than Unleaded 87. 
  • Unleaded 88 burns cleaner and reduces toxins, making it more environmentally friendly, says Sheetz.
  • Sheetz says 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. 

Regarding West Virginia, state laws require Sheetz to sell fuel at a level relative to cost. Thus, Sheetz discounted the fuel as low a price point as possible in the state. That is why there is a price difference.
