Most drivers have heard they can get a little more mileage out of their gas tank by accelerating more slowly or laying off the air conditioning, which are especially smart moves as gas prices hover around $5 a gallon. Ouch, indeed.
In a nod to rising gas prices, the convenience store chain Sheetz has just announced that it's dropping its prices on unleaded 88 and E85 gas to $3.99 and $3.49, respectively, for the Fourth of July travel season. Light-duty trucks and vehicles from 2001 or later can fill up with unleaded 88, while E85 is only for special flex-fuel autos. Sheetz owns more than 640 stores throughout Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Ohio, and North Carolina. If you can’t make it to a Sheetz station, here are a dozen ways to pay less for gas when you need to hit the road.
