Finding the Cheapest Gas Prices
From my experience as the whole country’s experience for that matter, the price of gasoline as gotten to be a factor in deciding how far to travel for any occasion. I’ve actually carpooled a few times which is something I never thought I’d do. Of course, traveling over the summer was almost cheaper to fly in some cases.
I decided to take a look online and see if there were any sites dedicated to finding low gas prices and of course there were plenty. Here is the sales pitch from GasBuddy.com, one of the better sites.
Gasoline prices change frequently and may vary by as much as 20 percent within only a few blocks it is important to be able locate the service station with the lowest priced fuel. GasBuddy web sites allow motorists to share information about low priced fuel with others as well as target the lowest priced stations to save money when filling up at the pumps!
I have been there and used it myself. The gas prices are set up by county or zipcode so it is easy to find your locale. The ranges in my area were $2.84 to $3.04 on Jan. 2, 2008. My minivan holds about 20 gallons or so, so that would be a savings of $4.00 at the maximum. It isn’t worth driving around for that small savings, but if I knew were to go to save $4.00 I would do that.
