What in the world is going on with the gas prices, I stopped today to fill up my truck and could not believe my eyes seriously it is unreal. I live in a small town in New Mexico where there is a huge amount of drilling done, everywhere you turn there is an oil rig, just about everyone you know works out in the oil field. It is huge business, just like it is many other places across the globe. When I stopped to fill up my truck today it was $3.91, and I know I should consider myself lucky because it is much more other places. Isn’t it ridiculous, that during the summer time when you want to take your family on a vacation they make it impossible by making the gas prices increase to a crazy amount.
I remember when I first started driving in 1996 gas was only $0.96 a gallon where I lived. It is our of control, how are we supposed to take our family on a vacation in the summer or anywhere for the holidays when they increase the gas prices so much. Summer is not even here yet, the children are still in school and the gas prices are on the rise what will they look like once it is time for the kids to be out and family vacations come around. How much more will they go up this year? How much is gas where you live?
I found this nifty Android app called Gas Buddy, had never heard of it and thought I would give it a whirl. Gas Buddy is a Mobile Application that helps you find the cheapest gas for free. You can find the gas stations that are closest to you and see which one has the cheapest gas for free, thank goodness something in this world is still free. There is also another awesome perk to Gas Buddy, you help report gas prices that you see. For every gas prices that you report to Gas Buddy, you earn points toward prize giveaway entries. They giveaway a $250 gas gift card weekly for simply helping others by reporting gas prices, it is everyone working together trying to help others save money on the already over priced gas prices.
I think this is a wonderful app, everyone gets involved, earns rewards for doing so and possibly even a gas card for $250. I have started to report gas prices not to earn rewards to but help others find cheap gas prices, if there is such a thing as cheap gas prices. If you have any tips to help people save money on gas I would love to hear them, also what are gas prices where you live?
