Sheetz lowers gas prices to $1.776 per gallon for 4th of July
"We hope this discount helps our customers keep a little more change in their wallets as they travel to celebrate the 4th of July with friends and family, with an obvious nod to our nation’s birthday," said Travis Sheetz.
Sheetz, a chain of convenience stores on the East coast, has lowered its gas prices to $1.776 per gallon to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday commemorating American independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain.
The specific price reflects the year 1776, when American Revolutionary leaders signed the Declaration of Independence.
The sale will apply to regular fuel, E85, unleaded 88, mid-grade, and premium fuel, The Hill reported. Diesel fuel is not included in the promotion. The sale will apply to all Sheetz locations.
Nationwide, the average price of a gallon of regular gas stands at $3.529 per gallon, according to AAA. E85 stands at $2.855, while mid-grade and premium stand at $3.957 and $4.285 per gallon, respectively.
"Sheetz is a family owned and operated company and we are always looking for ways to assist the communities and customers that we serve," President and CEO of Sheetz Travis Sheetz said. "We hope this discount helps our customers keep a little more change in their wallets as they travel to celebrate the 4th of July with friends and family, with an obvious nod to our nation’s birthday."
Gas prices have soared under President Joe Biden's administration, driven in part by OPEC+ production cuts, the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and myriad environmental policies from Washington. Costs have marginally come down since reaching a $5.016 per gallon high in mid-2022.
