Used car prices continue to climb as gas prices and supply chain backlogs drive up demand

With record gas prices and supply chain issues delaying new car production, more people are looking for cars with better mileage. That means more business for used car dealers.

Sheetz is aiming to alleviate pain at the pump with a new limited-time promotion that will be available through the July 4th holiday weekend.

FOURTH OF JULY TRAVEL: FLIGHT CANCELLATIONS CONTINUE AS HOLIDAY NEARS

The convenience store and gas station chain, which operates more than 640 locations across Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Ohio and North Carolina, will cut the price of its fuel to $3.99 per gallon for unleaded 88 and $3.49 per gallon for E85.

According to Sheetz, unleaded 88 is approved by the Environmental Protection Agency for use in vehicle model years 2001 or newer, as well as light-duty trucks, SUVs and Flex Fuel Vehicles.

Meanwhile, E85, which contains more ethanol (51%-83%), is designed specifically for flex fuel vehicles and should not be used in standard vehicles. Vehicle owners are encouraged to check their manual to see if their car can run with E85.
