Cheap gas?  Well, depends on the what you drive…

Sheetz has dropped the price of its Unleaded 88 to $1.99 a gallon through the Thanksgiving holiday weekend (actually through next Monday, Nov 28).  Unleaded 88, also known as E15, is for use in vehicles for model years 2001 or newer, as well as light-duty trucks, SUVs, and flex-fuel vehicles. Unleaded 88 has the same makeup as Unleaded 87, except 88 contains 5% more ethanol.

*Preston Bowden with ‘Brett’s Imports’ in Midway suggests looking at your vehicle’s ‘original gas cap’ for ‘recommended fuel info specific to your car’.

Experts also suggest checking your car’s manual (or your regular mechanic) before deciding which type of gasoline to fuel up with.) https://myfox8.com/news/gas-station-chain-sheetz-dropping-prices-to-1-99-for-thanksgiving-week/
