CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) — Sheetz announced that certain types of gas will be $3.99 through the Fourth of July on Monday and it has caused some confusion. What types of gas is at this price and where can I get it?
According to a press release from Sheetz, Unleaded 88 (U88) will be $3.99 per gallon and Ethanol 85 Flex Fuel (E85) will be $3.49 per gallon. They say this is to, “help reduce pain at the pump for consumers.”
Typically, you will see three types of gasoline at the pump. The U.S. Department of Energy says the three are: Unleaded 87, or regular grade, Unleaded 88 through 90, or midgrade, and Unleaded 91 through 94, or premium.
Sheetz says these types of cars can use its U88 gas:
- Cars made in 2001 or later
- Light-duty trucks
- Flex fuel cars
They say cars that can use E85 gas are “flex fuel-approved.” The U.S. Department of Energy says vehicle models after 2008 will have a yellow gas cap or an “FFV” or “Flex Fuel” badge on the body if they can use E85.
The Department of Energy does warn consumers that using E85 instead of Unleaded 88 can get you 15% to 27% fewer miles per gallon.
Certain counties in West Virginia do not have a Sheetz location that carries E85 or U88 gasoline. Below are the locations in West Virginia that do carry those types of gas, according to the Sheetz website’s location finder. Sheetz’s website says each location carries both U88 and E85 gasoline unless noted otherwise.
