Searching for Cheap Gas

Posted by: Olga Kharif on May 16, 2007

Like most Americans, I have to deal with sky-high gas prices this summer. But I’ve found a few Web sites that are really helpful for finding the cheapest gas around. My favorites: GasBuddy.com can tell you gas prices across the country, which is useful if you are planning a road trip. If you feel like getting depressed, the site can also provide you with historical prices.

FuelEconomy.gov offers tips on improving your mileage. And there are lots of helpful state- and city-specific sites, such as GeorgiaGasPrices.com and PortlandGasPrices.com, listing the cheapest gas stations around town. Please feel free to add to this list, we could all use a gas price break!

Thank you very much for sharing these web resources!

Switching for a hybrid vehicle would really help although right now, there's not much choice. About a year ago, a salesperson at my Honda dealership told me that the Japanese car maker was working on a diesel / electric hybrid SUV for the European market.

I'd sure like to get my hands on that kind of technology...

I saw a clip on my local NBC affiliate about a free download to your mobile phone that provides cheap gas prices right on your phone. I downloaded it, and it seems pretty nifty. The link to download to the phone is www.getmobio.com.
