3 Apps to Find the Cheapest Gas

Sandra Diaz

Despite advances in fuel efficiency and electric cars, fuel is still an expense that has to be factored into budgets. With that in mind, many savvy drivers are using apps to help them find the best prices on gas. Read how these three apps can help you find affordable fuel.

1. GasBuddy
GasBuddy uses gas price information provided by users from gas stations around the country to “support the common goal of saving money on gas”. You can search for gas stations near you or enter a zip code, city, or location. You can even save your favorite locations. GasBuddy is available for Android, iPhone, Windows, Blackberry, and you can even visit their Web site to check prices.

2. Gas Guru
The app uses up-to-date prices sourced right from the National Oil Service, so you'll know which stations have the best prices closest to you. You can save your favorite locations and compare stations close to home, work, or other locations, so you go to the place with the best price. You can filter your search by fuel grade as well as get detailed directions to your desired location. It’s available for Android and iPhone.

3. Waze  
One of the most popular real-time traffic and navigation apps also has the ability to help you find low gas prices. It uses the same community-based input they use for traffic to identify gas prices. Waze shows you where to find the cheapest gas right on your route. Plus, no need for another app – the gas stations appear on the same Waze map interface you’re already used to. It’s available for Android and iPhone users.
