By T. Thompson In Finance, Latest News with Comments Off on 3 Easy Ways to Save at the Gas Pump

    As gas prices approach a national average of $5 a gallon, many Americans are looking for ways to save money at the pump.

    Here are some methods that might help:

    Find cheaper gas with apps like GasBuddy, AAA

    Using apps like GasBuddy and AAA allows you to check nearby gas prices, so you can find the cheapest rate before fueling up.

    “Drivers can save in the range of 30 cents per gallon just by comparing prices and driving a few extra blocks,” GasBuddy spokesperson Nicole Petersen told Axios.

    Wholesale clubs like Costco and Sam’s Club

    Wholesale clubs such as Costco and Sam’s Club have some of the lowest gas prices available.

    “If you fill up at the wholesale club the majority of the time, you do get an advantage, and the more often you do it, (the membership) can pay for itself,” GasBuddy’s De Haan told the outlet.

    Loyalty and rewards programs

    Many gas station chains, including BP, Exxon, and Shell, have loyalty programs.

    Also, consider utilizing grocery stores like Kroger and Albertsons, which offer cheaper fuel prices with their loyalty programs.

    At Kroger, for instance, shoppers earn Fuel Points with the loyalty program and get between 10 cents and $1 off a gallon, depending on how many points they redeem.
