How To Save Money on Gas:

7 Easy Ways To Reduce Fuel Prices

Watching the price of gas continuously climb can be a source of financial stress, especially if you have a long commute.

While your wallet has likely been feeling the pinch, your hands aren't tied. Here are a few easy ways to save money on gas.

Apps can help you locate the cheapest gas prices in your area. For example, Gas Guru will tell you how much a gallon of gas costs at U.S. gas stations for regular gas and even allows you to view pricing for premium gas.

Upside is a free app for Android and iOS devices that rewards you with free gift cards (or PayPal cash) when you spend at gas stations, grocery stores, or restaurants.

Use Gift Cards for Gas Purchases

Most grocery stores now offer customers a loyalty program to help them save money on groceries and incentivize them to shop. Grocery chains that also sell gas often have a gas rewards program, which allows customers to earn rewards based on the amount of money they spend in the store.

Earn Rewards

Driving too fast or too slow can use more fuel. The U.S. Department of Energy suggests sticking to the speed limit as gas mileage quickly decreases beyond 50mph.
