Well it's Tuesday (at least that's what I think it is), and that means another Gas Tip! We'll cover where to get gasoline on vacation or on a road trip.
Many times on vacation or a road trip, you're hundreds of miles away from home on unfamiliar roads. Since many are relaxed during vacation, their minds aren't focused on saving money... but there's an easy way with just a few tips to save money at the pump while on the road and spend it doing something more enjoyable.
First of all, I would highly recommend using the GasBuddy Trip Cost Calculator before leaving for your destination. It's an easy way to show you where to get gasoline while en route to your destination. If you input your make, model, and year, our computers will figure out how big your tank is, and where the cheapest places will be to fill up once you get close to "E"! I'll briefly walk you though this.
Taking just a few extra minutes to find a cheaper gas station on vacation can really add up- it's like free gas, a free meal for the family, etc! It's more money in your pocket for you to enjoy!
