Popular Convenience Store Has Lowered Gas Prices Through July 4th
Every time that I drive by the Clarks Summit exit 194 off of I-81, I always stop and get some donuts from Krispy Kreme. I also have a standing order with a few friends of mine that whenever they drive by, if they stop to get me donuts, I'll pay for their dozen donuts too.
Now I have another reason to get off the Clarks Summit exit. If you haven't heard, Sheetz is temporarily lowering the price of two types of their gas. Gasoline will be $3.99 a gallon for unleaded 88 and $3.49 for E85 through the 4th of July, effective immediately.
There are a few things to keep in mind when you are traveling this Independence weekend. Not all 650+ Sheetz locations will be offering this type of gasoline and not all vehicles are compatible. So what's the difference between Unleaded 88 and E85?
Difference Between Unleaded 88 And E85 Gasoline
Unleaded 88 is for model year vehicles 2001 and newer, as well as light-duty trucks, SUVs, and flex-fuel vehicles.
E85 is made for flexible fuel vehicles and shouldn't be used in standard vehicles. Check your owner's manual to see if you can use it.
Flex-fuel is usually around 80 cents a gallon cheaper with few emissions, so it's better for the environment. But keep in mind that you'll get about 6 to 7 miles per gallon less with flex fuel as compared to "regular" gasoline.
With savings of around a dollar a gallon, it may be worth taking a trip to a Pennsylvania Sheetz from the Southern Tier...especially the Clarks Summit location because you can stop at Krispy Kreme on your way back to town.
