Use a gas rewards card.
Use it on a gas saving days - Many gas stations offer a discount on certain days with a fill up, this adds to even more savings for you. One gas station where I live offers $.06 off per gallon on tuesday's. Combine that with a 5% - 10% gas card savings - Nice savings!
Find other items on sale at the gas station - Many gas stations run good sales on various grocery type items, why not pick them up while your there to save even more (if you use the item anyway).
After you fill up, shut the pump down, pull the trigger and tip the hose up -There is gas left in the hose. You are paying for it -get it all.
Fill-up the gas tank in the morning. Some experts say a driver will get a little more gasoline per gallon if the gas tank is filled when temperatures are cooler. Over time, the extra fuel adds up.
Choosing The Gas Card That Is Right For You . . . . . There are many types of cards to choose from. A type of card issued by Visa or Mastercard through major banks offers gas rebates at any gas station along with other benefits. For example, not only do they offer 5% cash back on purchase at gas stations, supermarkets, and drug stores, but they also gives you 1% cash back on all other purchases.
Another type of gas reward card is specific to a particular chain of gas stations. For example, some gas chain specific cards let you earn a discount of 5% on all of their participating location purchases and also can be used anywhere Visa cards are accepted. Cards like this from the SpeedWay and Marathon gas station chains are great ways for saving on your gas purchases.
