CLEVELAND, Ohio — Drivers are dealing with high gas prices this Thanksgiving, but Sheetz is offering a cheap alternative to kick off the holiday season.

Through Monday, drivers can fill up with Unleaded 88 for $1.99 per gallon. The average price of regular, unleaded 87 gasoline was $3.44 per gallon in Cuyahoga County on Wednesday, according to the American Automobile Association.

It’s only available at select Sheetz gas stations, because not every Sheetz sells Unleaded 88.

The Sheetz on West 130th Street in Parma and the Sheetz on Royalton Road in Strongsville don’t sell Unleaded 88, for example. But the Sheetz in Brooklyn, the Ridge Road Sheetz in Parma and the Mayfield Heights Sheetz, as well as the Pearl Road location in Strongsville, do sell it.

So what is Unleaded 88? It’s essentially regularly gasoline but with more ethanol — a kind of alcohol made with corn and other plants that’s common in fuel. The most common mix is 10% ethanol to 90% gasoline. But Unleaded 88 has 15% ethanol.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says Unleaded 88 is OK to use instead of regular gasoline for all cars, trucks and SUVs built after 2001. When Sheetz doesn’t have a sale going on, it’s generally cheaper than Unleaded 87.
