In accordance to AAA, gasoline is averaging all over $4.89. In Pittsburgh, gasoline is averaging $4.98. 

Sheetz lowered its selling price for unleaded 88 fuel to $3.99 a gallon as a result of the Fourth of July holiday break. What some people may perhaps not comprehend is that their cars can not acquire that sort of gasoline.

The Sheetz on Perry Freeway in Wexford was bustling with persons taking benefit of the offer.

Nevertheless, some people today say they are unable to get either offer. John Urso of Wexford says his Chevy Malibu just usually takes normal unleaded 87.
