I didn't check for sure, but I am pretty confident you could find HEET at Mack's Inn or Sawtelle.  Benchmark doesn't have it and I don't remember seeing HEET in Augusta.
None at Ghost Ranch, Pie Town or South Pass either.

The only time I could have used some more and had a hard time finding it was in East Glacier.  I got there shortly after a big group of SoBos though.  The guy at the Exxon said he sold more HEET in the summer than winter.  I tried to explain to him its popularity among the hikers.  Maybe next year the stock levels will be better.

We can confirm that supplies of HEET were available in 2006 in:
East Glacier
West Yellowstone
Silver City

NOT in Pie Town or Lake Roberts or South Pass/Atlantic City.

Cannot be sure from my records of Old Faithful.
Did not visit Gila Hot Springs, Ghost Ranch or Benchmark.
