Effective immediately, the convenience store chain is charging $3.99 per gallon for the Unleaded 88 and $3.49 per gallon for the E85, according to the company’s news release. This is a limited time offer available till 4th July.
The Unleaded 88 can be used for model year 2001 or newer as well as in light-duty trucks, SUVs and flex fuel vehicles, the company said in the release. The E85 is specifically designed for vehicles with flexible fuel, and drivers should check their owner’s manual to see if they can use it.
Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy, recommends that drivers check their owners manual before refilling gasoline.
Most cars will be fine with up to 15 percent ethanol included in the fuel, and if that’s okay, go for it, he said.

The price of gasoline has been falling in recent weeks, according to AAA.
On Tuesday, the average nationwide price was $4.88 a gallon. This is down from a June 14 high of $5.01.
AAA spokesman Andrew Gross said in a news release that “oil costs about $3 for every $4.89 at a gas pump. Consumers should find more relief on refueling if oil prices fall further.”
