Saving money on gas is easy with this free cell phone app.  This free app gives you the scoop in the best prices in your area.  Saving money on gas made easy.

Saving with GasBuddy.com

Gasbuddy.com makes saving money on gas a breeze (no pun intended).  I have used it for a couple of years now and I love it.  Basically, once you register, you are enabled to report the lowest (or the highest) gas prices in your area.  The Gasbuddy user community benefits by saving money from your updates (and you from theirs).  If you report a gas price, you earn points towards a number of giveaways.  You do not need to be a member to access the latest prices and go on your way towards saving money on gas.

This free money saving app is currently available for iPhone, Windows, Android, and BlackBerry.

Now, with this being said, it makes no sense to drive to the other end of town for the savings of a dollar or two.  I drive a Mazda Protege with a gas tank that holds fifty-five liters (14.5 US Gallons).   Saving about ten cents per liter (a reasonable spread between the highest and lowest prices in my area) would net me a savings of $5.50.  Obviously I am not going to drive to the other side of town for these savings.

What I do is find the consistently cheapest places to buy gas in my neighbourhood and where I work and I monitor these stations using Gasbuddy.com.  When their names show up (as they often do), I know it’s time for a fill up (and enjoy saving at the same time).

Your gas savings can be further enhanced by shopping at a gas retailer that offers you additional savings with a coupon or some other benefit for filling up with them.

Loblaws Logo (they own Loblaws at the Pumps)

Loblaws at the Pumps, for example, offers you an additional 2 cents per liter coupon that can be used to buy groceries at its’ parent company (which owns Loblaws, No Frills, Longos, Valu-Mart, and a few others).  Check my in-depth money saving review here.

We all look for savings while buying (increasingly expensive) gas.  Gasbuddy.com is a very convenient and easy way to make sure that you are maximizing your savings with each fill up.  This free app is easy to install and it works (decide to be an updater for your area and you could even win some free giveaways).

Free Amazon Gift Card

I also wanted to remind you that froogalism.com is offering a free $25.00 gift card for Amazon to all of its readers from the US or Canada.  All you need to do is link to my site on your website (read all of the details here).  Savings and free stuff?  Yes, all of this and more is yours at froogalism.com!
