Financial survival means being able to live from paycheck to paycheck, hopefully with a little left over for a rainy day. Gas prices are really eating into not only American budgets, but budgets across the world. Gas is nearing the $4 mark in our small Southern town, and it’s much higher than that in a lot of U.S. cities. Of course, gas prices vary within cities, too. You might be surprised by how much they can vary from store to store or from station to station. So how you can be sure you’re getting the best deal in your town? Are you supposed to drive around looking at the posted prices, wasting gas in the process?
Well, you could do that, but an easy way to find the cheapest prices in your area is to go to http://gasbuddy.com/. I checked the site out before recommending it, and it works! The prices I found were correct, and getting the information is totally free. All you do is type in your zip code, and you’ll be presented with a list of stores and gas stations in your town or city that have the lowest gas prices. The price of gas at each store is provided, along with the store’s address.
Even if you save only a few cents a gallon, it adds up! This is especially true if you drive a lot of have a big gas guzzler. Try it for yourself! Remember, it’s free, with no strings attached.
