If You're Paying Too Much For Gas Read This!

By
Home Stager with Design To Market LLC

If you work in real estate you probably drive...ALOT!  These gas prices are terrible and getting worse.   I learned about a mobile app today that I am really excited about.  It is called GasBuddy.com and it is a free app (at least on my Droid.)  It identifies your location with the GPS on your phone and tells you the cheapest nearby location to purchase gas.

I used it today and found a spot that was $.10 cheaper than my normal gas station.  

I am always looking for other ways to save...PLEASE SHARE!!!!!

That's a great tip to share -- sounds like an app we can all use these days!

This is very interesting, and I think that we are all going to look for ways to save as gas gets more expensive,bacuri

I love this program... I used the web version a lot when I was living in Hawaii. Now that I have it on my phone, it's so much easier to find the cheapest station!

I was told that some gas stations update every 30 minutes!  Can you imagine how crazy we would all be if everything we bouhgt (houses?) changed prices that quickly!?

Very good tip. Some Agent with the big town cars have started looking at smaller cars and hybrids. Gas prices are getting out of control. I drive 30,000+ miles a year.

Wow! Roger...I thought 15,000 was a lot!  You should see a huge savings.

Gas is not coming down anytime soon. We have warships in route and if there is any unrest in Saudi Arabia we will have 5 dollar a gallon gas for sure.

Didn't know that Gas Buddy was a Droid app. Thanks for a great tip, Jo!

There are so many great apps...probably too many to know which to use!

I think I need more than just an app. Here in Sacramento Diesel has broken the $4/gallon mark in some places.

We should all be crying out to "Drill Baby Drill!

We can't do anything but shop for the lower prices, but we can make our voices heard to lower our dependency on foreign oil.

We may yet see $8.00 to $10.00 per gallon prices. How painful will it be then?

And we can all use this.  Oh boy.  I think moving to a home close to work  and school would help too at least for hubby and child.

With our neighborhood station (and others as well) currently charging $3.89/gallon for unleaded, my husband actively uses this app before gassing up! Thanks for the reminder!

In our rural area, most of the gasoline stations all charge the same price.. so our concern is the quality of the gasoline since price is the same. I guess they don't make an app for that ...
