2016 saw some of the best gas prices in almost a decade, and to keep the momentum going I want to talk about Gas Apps. Nothing irks me more than being on the highway or in a town I’m not familiar with and not know where the nearest gas station is. I know that most of us have dozens of apps on our phones or tablets as it is, but the apps I’m going to be talking about not only help you save time, but gas and money too! Let’s take a look at the best seven apps of 2017, shall we?
Before you leave your local car dealership, make sure you get filled up on gas and know where to locate the nearest gas station.
MapQuest Gas Prices:
Yup, MapQuest is still around. And it has one of the best apps for finding cheap gas prices.
MapQuest lets you choose favorite stations and select your fuel grade, and then it directs you to the cheapest gas station in your area. But if you want its app to navigate you to the gas station of your choice, you’ll also need the MapQuest GPS app.
The popular crowdsourced navigation app lets you know how much you’ll pay for gas as you travel, and it can direct you to the cheapest gas station. By going to its partner gas stations, the app offers “Waze-only” deals.
If you’re into saving money on gas but not interested in doing any work, consider Gas Guru. The app draws its gas price information from the Oil Price Information Service, so the prices are always up to date. The Gas Guru app provides directions to the cheapest gas station near you.
The app incentivizes people to post gas prices by offering a weekly drawing for a $100 gas card. GasBuddy gives users points every time they post prices. They need to report about six or seven gas prices to be eligible for the drawing.
With Gas Stations, you can find gas around you as well as finding out the prices of the gas around you. This makes it easy to find a gas station to fill up when you’re on the go. Additionally, you can favorite gas stations in the app, so you can find them again in the future.
With Cheap Gas, you can find the price of gas near you. The pop-up will tell you the name of the station, the price, the address and when it was last updated. The data for when it was updated is equally important, as it could have been weeks since someone had updated it.
Again, the name of the app says it all – Gas Finder is here to help you find gas. Knowing where a gas station is located is equally important on the road as it is to find food. Gas Finder will help you navigate to it to the gas station of your choice, which is a feature that quite a few people will find handy.
