11 Tips for Saving Money on Gas in 2022

As the price of oil rises, gas will only continue to increase. Although experts can't predict when prices will go back to normal, there are plenty of tips to consider and take action when filling your car up. Grant Wasylik, from Palm Beach Research Group, put together a list of tips to try and save money at the gas pump during the rise of prices. Take a look at these 11 tips for saving money from Palm Beach Daily.

Buy gas early in the week. A GasBuddy study reports Monday is the best day of the week to buy gas. Since there’s variation across states, you can view GasBuddy’s Best and Worst Days to Buy Gas, By State.

Download a free gas-price finder app. GasBuddy, Gas Guru, and Gas Prices by MapQuest are all top-rated apps. They are easy-to-use ways to find the cheapest gas station(s) in your area.

Pay in cash. Some gas stations offer lower prices if you pay by cash. They usually advertise it on their price boards, and the difference can be as much as 10 cents or more.

Use a credit card with max gas rewards. See NerdWallet’s Best Gas Credit Cards of March 2022. Make sure to pay off the charges each month to avoid paying interest.

Purchase discounted gas gift cards online. Sites like Gift Card Granny, CardCash, and Gift Card Place offer discounted gas gift cards.

Sign up for a gas station reward program. Most gas stations (ExxonMobil, Shell, Speedway, etc.) have them.

Take advantage of warehouse clubs. BJ’s, Costco, and Sam’s Club price gas cheaper as an extra membership incentive.

Keep your car in good shape. Maintain a clean air filter… keep tires properly inflated and aligned… stay on top of oil changes and use the recommended grade. Basically, stick to a regular maintenance schedule.

Drive sensibly. Speeding and jackrabbit starts and stops hurt fuel economy. Use cruise control when possible.

Use GPS. A navigation app, like Waze, Google Maps, or Apple Maps, will provide the most efficient route to a destination.

Consider alternative transportation. Carpool. Ride a bike. Or use public transportation.
