Do you have a large gas tank that shocks you every time you have to fill it up? Here are a few tips to help you save at the gas pump:
Look for the best gas prices via www.gasbuddy.com. This website will tell you what gas station has the best gas prices in your area. Also look for the app in your phone’s marketplace.
Find discount gas stations in your area. Whole Sale clubs such as Sam’s Club and Coscto have gas stations that you can purchase gas at a discount if you are a member. Grocery stores such as Fry’s Food Stores and Safeway have discounts when you purchase certain dollar amounts. If you are in AZ, Fry’s Food actually started a new program where you can start using your “Fuel Points” at any participating Shell Gas Stations. Just scan your Fry’s card at the pump!
While these won’t save mass mounts of money, these 5 tips can help save a bit of money in your gas tank:
Maintain your vehicle ~ Dirty Filters and other important maintenance items can be costly when not kept up with.
Keep your tires inflated ~ under inflated tires aren’t only dangerous, they can cost you a few cents in gas.
Remove weight ~ unnecessary weight can weigh the car down to cause your car to work harder and burn more gas.
Drive Sensibly ~ Don’t speed and do not immediately brake and accelerate.
