Thorntons is offering E-85 flex fuel for 85 cents per gallon on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, at select locations.
E-85 is an alcohol-based fuel, comprised of just 15% petroleum. Ethanol can be made from virtually any agriculture feedstock from which starch is derived, such as corn, sugar cane, wheat or milo. Today, the vast majority of domestic ethanol is produced from corn, grown in the Midwest and is an abundant and renewable grain.
E-85 as an alternative fuel has experienced tremendous growth in the last 10 years. The growth is due primarily to the fuel’s many benefits as a renewable fuel that helps create a cleaner environment, boosts the U.S. economy and reduces oil imports.
Thorntons ranks among Forbes magazine’s 500 largest privately held companies. Headquartered in Louisville, Ky., the chain operates 165 gasoline/convenience stores, one travel plaza, and eight car washes.
