Unleaded 88 gas is a blend of 84 octane gas and 15% ethanol which was approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to be used in cars, trucks, and SUVs produced in 2001 or after.
To date, the national average of gas prices is $3.274 per gallon, Patrick DeHaan, the head of petroleum analysis at Gas Buddy wrote in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter

The promotion from Sheetz comes as the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) said it is expecting to screen roughly 30 million passengers using airlines to travel from Nov. 17 to Nov. 28.
TSA is reportedly expecting the Sunday after Thanksgiving to be the busiest day, with roughly 2.9 million people traveling.
Additionally, 55.4 million people throughout the United States are expected to be traveling during Thanksgiving week, according to AAA. Out of this number, 49.1 million Americans will travel by automobile, 4.69 million are expected to travel by air, and another 1.55 million will use some other form of transportation to travel for the holidays.
