You Will Need
- A computer with internet access
- Discount retailers
- Rebate cards
- A cheap gas log (optional)
Use the internet
Search for web sites that allow you to search your area for current cheap gas prices.
Venture from the nice area
Venture out of the wealthier neighborhoods to find cheaper gas. Often, the cheaper the land and the property taxes, the cheaper the gas.
Travel away from the freeway
Travel a little farther away from the freeway when you get gas. Gas stations closer to the freeway will charge more because of higher demand.
Check out discount retailers
Go to large discount retailers that have gas stations on their properties. They are often priced lower to get you to come into the store.
Use a rebate card
Sign up for rebate cards. They usually offer discounts and cash-back programs when you use the card at their stations.
Look for "price wars"
Be on the lookout for local price wars. Frequently gas stations across the street from each other will offer increasingly competitive prices.
