How to Find the Cheapest Gas Prices in Your Area

The price of gas is one of the most important cost efficiency struggles of our everyday lives. Here is a great web site you can use to find the cheapest gas prices in your area.

Instructions

  • Step 1: Use the internet Search for web sites that allow you to search your area for current cheap gas prices.
  • Step 2: 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.
  • Step 3: 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.
  • TIP: Keep a log of gas stations that have cheaper prices when you're on a trip or on your way to work. The next time you're in that area you'll know where to go.
  • Step 4: 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.
  • Step 5: 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.
  • Step 6: 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.
  • FACT: Because a car's gas mileage usually decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 miles per hour, every 5 miles per hour over 60 you go is like paying an extra 24 cents per gallon of gas.

You Will Need

  • A computer with internet access
  • Discount retailers
  • Rebate cards
  • A cheap gas log (optional)
