If the price of gas has you seeking out ways to save money in other areas, you can add Krispy Kreme to your discount list.

For the second time in just two months, the doughnut shop is offering a deal that will get you doughnuts based on the price of gas. Krispy Kreme will price a dozen of its original glazed doughnuts at the U.S. national average for a gallon of regular gasoline every Wednesday for the entire summer — June 8-Aug. 31.

Because the price of a dozen doughnuts varies by location, we can’t say exactly how much you’ll be saving with the Wednesday deal, but it is definitely a discount no matter where you live. The deal price of the doughnuts will be the same everywhere, as it is dependent on the national average, not the price of gas in your hometown. The price will be updated weekly, and you can check on Tuesdays to see how much you’ll be paying Wednesday.

You can get up to two dozen glazed doughnuts at the special price by stopping by in person, via drive-thru and for pick-up by ordering online and through the Krispy Kreme app. Because the deal extends all the way to the end of August, you’ll be able to grab the doughnuts and take them on the road for Labor Day travel.

Krispy Kreme first offered the deal April 13-May 4 and it must have proved popular, since this time it’s sticking around for three months!
