Need Help with Gas Prices? {Thrifty Thursday}

What in the WORLD is going on with gas prices?? I drive an SUV and the gas prices right now are not helping me be thrifty these days!!

Recently, while taking a trip out of town, my husband and I discovered a helpful application on my smart phone called Gasbuddy. If you don’t have a smart phone, you can just use their website. Easy, peasy.

Look! You can search for gas prices in your area and their site is very easy to use.

  1. I have used gas buddy for a couple of years. I also use my SAMs Business Card and today got an additional 5cents off per gallon. I am happy that we don't have our SUV anymore, if only for the gas prices! Great info! Thanks Sandi!
