A mid-Atlantic gas station chain is reportedly selling gas for $1.99 per gallon during Thanksgiving week.

The discount is offered at establishments carrying Unleaded 88 in Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.

The low $1.99 price results in more than $1 in savings per gallon, according to USA Today. Patrick De Haan, the head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy, said on X the national average for Unleaded 88 gas sits at $3.274 per gallon.

Oil prices have spiked due to the rising winter demand and the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries’ (OPEC) heavy production cuts, which may result in gas costs to surpass $4 per gallon, experts told Daily Caller News Foundation in October.

Former President Donald Trump criticized high gas prices under the Biden administration in May, stating Biden’s “reckless policies” caused inflation.

Unleaded 88 is a fuel blend also referred to as E15, consisting of 15% ethanol and 85% gasoline, USA Today reported. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved Unleaded 88 for use in all vehicles released since 2001.
