Between now and July 4th, Sheetz is reducing the price of Unleaded 88 to $3.99 a gallon, and E85 to $3.49 a gallon.
Unleaded 88 is able to be used in all cars made in 2001 or later. As for E85, that is more designed for flexible fuel vehicles. According to Sheetz, it should not be used in standard vehicles.
