Tip of the Day

Find the cheapest gas on your trip

  • My wife and I like to do long cross-country driving trips for summer vacation. We know from experience the gas stations along the freeways are usually the most expensive. But driving into an unfamiliar town looking for cheap gas can waste a lot of time. Is there a better way?
  • Grab an app called Gas Buddy (Android, Apple, Windows Phone; Free) before you take off. Simply punch in the city or ZIP code you're in and you'll see where the cheapest gas is. You can also add the most recent prices you find and earn points that can lead to free gas. That isn't the only app you'll want to take on a road trip, though. Click here for five more apps you don't want to leave home without, and see a list of road trip sights science says you need to check out.
