Go-To Gas Pricing App

I love exploring our beautiful country in my RV, but one of the largest expenses in this type of travel is the fuel cost. Finding stations a few miles off the freeway can save you a bundle.

There are a lot of resources that try to alert you to current gas prices, but my go-to is still the GasBuddy app.

With a community of 70 million users in the US and Canada, the app can help you in two ways.

If you want to plan ahead, you can search by city or county to see the 10 lowest prices in an area you’re heading to or search from the road to see where fuel options are near you.

What’s really great is that it shows you the last time someone reported the price, which is typically less than an hour for most major metro areas.

GasBuddy can set a filter to search for diesel or other specialty grades of fuel and sort the results based on price, distance or both.
