Saving Gas the Smart Way

Jun 14, 2008
In recent times, gasoline prices are mounting so rapidly and haphazardly that whenever a person fills gas in his/her vehicle, it seems that the wallet is getting thinner and thinner. Therefore, the major concern for almost every vehicle owner is how to save on gas?

There are many different ways of saving money on gas. First, you can obtain membership of a royalty club. Certain gas stations, grocery stores as well as department stores offer membership cards to their customers. When you furnish this card at fuel stations, which are affiliated with such stores, you obtain fuel at discounted prices.

Locate the best deal in your area by searching through web sites. Several web sites are available, where you can find the best rates on gas in your area. Apart from this, use low octane gas in your car. Low octane gasoline is affordable and modern day cars run smoothly on this fuel. However, you need to see that your vehicles are compatible with it or not.

Third step is that you need to take care of your vehicle because older vehicles and those, which need to repair, consume lot of gasoline. Below are some points, which will help you to save on gas using gasoline credit cards.

Gasoline Credit Cards:

To obtain gasoline credit cards, you can check with different credit card companies. Study their rates, benefits and then apply for the ideal gasoline credit card. Here, when you visit a gas station to pump fuel in your vehicle, you do not pay cash instead you pay the fuel bill using the gasoline credit card.

Now you may think as how one may save money using gasoline credit cards. When people obtain gasoline credit cards and use them to make gas payments, credit card firms send them monthly bills.

If you pay the bills on time, you are entitled to get certain points as rewards. The rewards may come as discount certificates, gift cards or checks, which you can use it to convert into money.

So, that when you go to the gas station next time, to fill the fuel, you can use this money equivalent (reward) to pay the bill, thereby you save money on fuel.

Some companies offer gasoline credit cards, which offer rewards after signing up with them. Most cards will offer you with rebate of $50, when you furnish your gasoline card at the gas station.

Moreover, you can easily find gasoline credit cards that have 0% APR (Average Percentage Rate). That means you do not have to pay fees for the introductory year. However, after the introductory year, the credit card company will charge you with APR.

Use Gasoline Credit Cards And Save Money:

Depending on your gasoline credit cards you can save anywhere from 1% to 6%, which means you can easily save nearly $0.20 per gallon. Credit card firms may also increase or double the rebates for a particular period (say 2 or 3 months after you sign up) on each gallon.

However, remember that you can save on fuel using gasoline credit cards only when you pay off your monthly bills on time.
