$100 In Your Pocket Just For Driving Your Car 1 Block For Gas

Don’t you just hate it when you just filled up your take with gas only to drive 2 more blocks and pass a gas station with prices that are much cheaper than what you just paid?

Even though it may be just $0.05/gallon, that little difference makes you cringe if only for a second. Here’s how you can eliminate that un-ncessary moment in your driving day.

I saved a bookmark on my cell phone’s mobile browser for www.fuelmeup.com with my home zipcode.

That way, I can quickly go to that page and see an immediate listing of all the local stations and their current pricing. It’s quite amazing. Last week, I just saved $2.30 on a full tank of gas by driving literally one block around the corner to the next gas station. Hey, that paid for the 2 sodas we bought at the station.

For example, a quick search brought up a 24 cent difference between 2 local gas stations. That’s a BIG spread for the same product…gas!

Put it another way, if I save $2/week when filling up, that’s over $100/year. If you have extra $100’s to just give away, contact me immediately so that I can take them off your hands. 😉 As Ben Franklin said, a penny saved is a penny earned! $2 saved is $2 earned in this case!

  1. I use http://gastips.com/ here in Vancouver Canada for a similar purpose.

    Although I generally don’t fill up in Vancouver anymore. I fill up across the border in Washington State when I’m down there for my monthly mail runs. It is a
    HUGE savings (normally about 80 cents-$1 per gallon).
