Circle K is offering a gas discount of 40 cents a gallon on Thursday, September 1, to mark Circle K Fuel Day.
The sale, available at over 3,600 locations that sell Circle K-branded fuel, takes place before Labor Day holiday To allow customers to fill their lockers in time for their travel plans.
The discount is only available at locations that sell Circle K brand gas. About half of Circle K stores nationwide sell their brand of gas, including over 40 locations in Phoenix alone.
Here’s what the scene was like at two Phoenix Circle K subway gas stations when the discount became available.
Labor Day 2022: Here’s how Arizonans deal with busy highways and airports
The Circle K at 2402 E. McDowell Road, a few miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, advertised one of the lowest prices per gallon in the valley: $3.19. It was busy enough that someone directed traffic in and out of the parking lot.
Circle K employees distributed 20 cent fuel discount cards to customers who attended. Cards are valid from 2 to 30 September.
Circle K’s regional distribution manager said he was not allowed to comment to the media about the promotion.
Although a national promotion announced that promotional fuel prices would be available from 4-7 p.m., some stations started a few minutes earlier, such as the one at 975 N. Seventh St. Unleaded gasoline at $3.33 per gallon.
By 3:45 p.m., three of the station’s 10 pumps ran out of fuel completely. Three others still regularly kept it unleaded but ran out of diesel fuel.
Fletcher Anderson recently moved to Tempe from Minnesota to attend classes at Arizona State University. He said the prices were about $4 in Minnesota when he left, so it was “relaxing” to see the prices drop on Thursday. “I saw it was $3.30, which is a lot cheaper than it used to be, so I went straight in,” he said.
How to get a Circle K gas deal.
Circle K will offer 40 cents a gallon savings for three hours from 4-7 p.m. local time Thursday. Anyone standing in line to get gas before 7pm will receive the discount.
The pump price will reflect the discount, according to Circle K.
Madeleine Black, a company spokeswoman, said customers enrolled in Circle K’s Easy Pay program can save an extra 10 cents per gallon while selling fuel with their Easy Pay card.
Customers can find the nearest locations near them by going to Circlek.com/store-locatorsearch their locations and select “Circle K Fuel Stores”.
