Saving at the Pump

With gas prices at an all-time high, here are some ways to save money at the pump.

You’ve likely noticed that gas is extremely expensive right now. Your powers of observation are astute: Gas prices are actually at an all-time high. According to the app GasBuddy, the average price of a gallon of gas is now $4.32, the highest it has ever been. Now would be a good time to try and save on gas expenses. Here’s how to do that.

Use an App

Gas tracking apps like GasBuddy and AAA will help you find the cheapest gas near you. This is helpful, because the prices of gas can vary from town-to-town, even street-to-street.

Use Cash

Another way to save money at the pump is to use cash. As USA Today notes, using cash can save you anywhere between 5 and 10 cents per gallon. That might not seem like a lot, but it adds up over time.

Get Rewards

You should sign up for gas station loyalty programs. Pretty much every station has some kind of program. Right now consumers who are members of 7-11’s program get an 11 cents per gallon discount on their first seven fill-ups.

Go Monday

If you can time it right, filling up on Mondays is the way to go. According to reports, Mondays are the cheapest day for gas. Sundays are the runners-up.
