How can you find out if you're local store is doing it? Will they tell you if you call and ask them or is it like a secret?

My store had little flyers posted up in the store saying "dollar a gallon sale on the 30th." They want you to know before hand because it brings in customers, so as soon as the store manager knows they tell everyone!!! So if you call they will tell you, if they know. I've heard people on here say" oh they keep it a secret", that's a terrible way to do business.

Your best bet is to go in and ask, or call and ask. Their website is corporate run and since the sales are usually local you probably won't see it on their website. Every time my store has one they post signs weeks in advance.

That's sweet! Hopefully my store is doing that as well. The dollar a gallon sale is very smart on their part. They probably don't make a huge profit on the tanks themselves, where they get us is everything that goes with the tank.
