Regardless of trying to argue the reasons “why,” the fact is that gas prices are a concern for millions of working families all over North America and in many other countries as well. Here in the States (and Canada), we have been given the ability to find solutions to make sure that every dollar going into the tank offers maximum bang for our dollar spent.
Today, I decided to look into a couple of solutions in an effort to make sure that my gas dollars were going to the gas station offering me the best price. My first stop was to MSN and its “auto” section. Overall, it offers a fair set of results for my search here in Bellingham, WA. What I was disappointed to find was the lack of Fred Meyer and Costco in the list.
So, largely unimpressed, my search continued and I was able to locate this resource. Well, I can tell you this much, the results are certainly better than the previous results. So I think it is safe to say that knowing about resources such as GasBuddy.com, can quite literally save you money – especially in a larger city where it is more difficult to keep tabs on the best gas prices. Take both resources for a spin, then share which is providing you with the best results. Who knows, perhaps you have a largely undiscovered alternative that is yielding better results? If you are, don’t forget to share it with the rest of us.
