Finding the Best Gas Prices Throughout the U.S. and Canada
The cost of putting gasoline into your automobile or truck can really put a dent in your budget. But if you know how to find the best gas prices no matter where you are located throughout the United States or Canada, you really can save a little cash that adds up to more money in your pocket at the end of every month.
The Internet can serve as your best resource for finding the best gas prices at service stations no matter where you are located. This can be especially helpful if you are travelling because although you may know where to find the cheapest gas prices right in your own hometown, when you are hundreds or thousands of miles away from home, it's essential to be able to be directed to the places insiders know offer the least expensive prices at the gas pump.
There are numerous websites that have sprouted over the past several years since the price of gasoline has continued to spiral upwards. Websites such as GasBuddy and GasPriceWatch offer suggestions based on state or zip code and list a variety of cities within a region. You can even sign up yourself to volunteer as a gas watcher to post findings of new places offering the cheapest gas prices. The government also offers suggestions at fueleconomy.gov and MapQuest has a special site called gasprices devoted to offering tips on where to fuel up for less.
It also helps to belong to a loyality program offered by some gas stations, in addition to using unbranded stations that don't have to pay expensive fees for marketing. Before you pump, check to see if you can pay a lower price by using cash rather than credit card and don't let your fuel gage get too low before checking the gas watcher websites for the station nearest you offering the most attractive price!
