Apps Help You Save On Gas

If you spend a lot of time driving around a large city, you pass countless gas stations and probably find it’s tough to be certain that you’re stopping at the right one. It helps to have a smartphone app that keeps tabs of the ever-changing pump prices.

Financial recommends several free apps that do the trick, including:

Local Gas Prices — The iPhone app provides a little map with nearby gas options.

Cheap Gas — Also for the iPhone, the app gives you distance to gas stations along with prices, then lets you plot a route to the cheapest one.

AAA TripTik Mobile — Available on Android devices, this one is ideal for travel, displaying gas stations as well as AAA-approved hotels. It also helps you find your location in case you need roadside assistance.
